Recent studies on nuclear structure by using radioactive isotope beams available at the RIKEN projectile-fragment separator (RIPS) are introduced. Special emphasis is given to two selected experiments from recent programs that highlight studies on the magicity loss observed for very neutron-rich nuclei beyond N=20 in the "island-of-inversion" region; the particle stability of $\chem{^{31}F}$, and the low-lying excited states of $\chem{^{34}Mg}$.
