- Okinawan: 世果報 (yugafuu)
Yugafuu is an Okinawan term meaning, roughly, "good fortune." The word appears in many ryûka (traditional poems), and classical songs, and is mainly associated with Miruku (Maitreya, J: Miroku), who brings good fortune with him, as he arrives in the village from nirai kanai (a land of the gods, beyond the sea) on the occasions of certain festivals.
