However, as the number of lives that can be saved increases due to advances in medical technology, the number of children in Japan who require medical care on a daily basis, so-called “children requiring medical care,” as well as children with illnesses and disabilities, is increasing.
“If you need medical equipment such as a respiratory machine, it’s hard to go out because the alarm sounds and you’re worried about the eyes around you.”

We hear from mothers who are busy taking care of their children, “I don’t have time to take care of myself” and “I feel guilty that I shouldn’t keep things clean.”
Isn’t it necessary to have an opportunity to “refresh” more easily? With that in mind, with the cooperation of the ROSEGALLERY Ginza main store, we will hold a new Tokyo outing project, “Going out to Ginza project-Mama returns to “me”-”.

When raising a child with an illness or disability, going out alone is a high hurdle, both in terms of time and mentally. I saw it and felt it.
′′ take care of yourself ′′ is very important and very difficult. However, I would be happy if this event could be an opportunity for you to have time and excitement such as “admiring flowers” and “loving yourself” in your busy everyday life.
