Tokyo Intellectually Disabled Persons’ Ikuseikai / Honninbukai

Invitation to Yuuaikai

Hello, we are Yuuaikai.

Yuuaikai is an association Honninbukai established within the Tokyo Intellectually Disabled Persons’ Ikuseikai (Parents’ Association).

At Yuuaikai, we discuss our daily living, join in fun activities, and can actively discuss what we want to do and say.

From Yamada, Representative of Yuuaikai

It has already been ten years since Yuuaikai was established. In this association, we are free to discuss anything on a regular basis, including what we think about or what troubles us.

Please come and visit us. You will find something new.

We sincerely welcome you to join us.

From Ogata, President of Tokyo-to Ikuseikai

It is 10 years since Yuuaikai was established. Today, we have 200 members, and we have many people from Ikuseikai who provide assistance. We have also donated one million yen as an activity fund. However, we have not seen much increase in the number of members.

Yuuaikai is an association in which persons with intellectual disabilities get to know one another, and openly and freely discuss work, daily living, romantic relationships, marriage, and other issues. I would like as many people as possible to become members.

We will also do our best to promote independence, self-decision, and rights of persons with intellectual disabilities, together with you all.
