The incorporated nonprofit organization in Kyoto established the massage shop where the DeafBlind work in Doshisha University's public sports facilities in Kyoto City on July 18.
The DeafBlind person is not able often not to take communications with the patient easily and to move around, so starting business is difficult, even if he or she has acquired the license of the massage and the acupuncture and moxibustion
The shop established in facilities that many citizens use offers the DeafBlind a place for the business support with more customers coming,.
All the thing has started with a twenties DeafBlind woman from Shiga Prefecture who complained about the job opportunity.
The shop opens on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00-18:00. Currently two are hired. More staff will be increased and the business hour will be extended if it gets on the right track.
