Aigawa’s work is considered as an avant-garde art. His advanced style was evaluated by OKKOTSU Akio in the book: Gendai shijin gunsō. Aikawa’s father was a wood sculpturer and his younger brother was a painter. Aikawa called himself wandering poet and use Hakkō as his pseudonym.. In this travel record of Ryukyu yūki, he described how he was excited with all things during his stay on the main islands of Okinawa when he traveled around by "Visiting the Ryukyus, the Kingdom, which I always adored. Its isolated location in the southern seas make its customs and characters of the people different with those in mainland Japan”. This material depicts pre-war scenery and residents of Okinawa that fascinated other radically new poets. (—AKAMINE Mamoru)
