Kawasaki-shi, Kanagawa Prefecture:
   
The non-profit corporation called the "People Design Research Center" (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) is selling the "Kawasaki-shi Communication Charm" at two places in Kawasaki-shi in order that the able-bodied person who supports a person with disability carries it around.

The charm combined with the hook type key ring is designed so that a Deaf person can communicate by pointing. The symbols not only necessary when asking for emergency, such as "Yes" and "No", but also "restroom" and "hospital", are shown on a card made of the acrylic fiber.

 The price is 756 yen (including tax).
