Community Activities Section
As Japanese society has changed in recent years, so the lives of Japanese people have changed also. But even today, the resources and support required by people in their day-to-day lives have not changed. If anything the need for these things has increased.
Ever since it was established, the Kobokan has been working together with local residents in grappling with important issues related to the education and development of children and the support of elderly people. Centered in the local community, the Kobokan acts as a base where many people can meet, participate in activities, and develop mutual understanding and co-operation.
