Tokyo Tales: Quick Update

There have been no update since Monday. Everyday is a rush between commuting from Hino to Hachioji and back, and full days of lectures. We went on two field trips. The first was to Hosono-san’s house on Tuesday. He lives about thirty minutes from Human Care in Hachioji. He has cerebral palsy and is living independently. This young man of twenty one is such an inspiration. On Wednesday, we visited HANDS Setegaya. This is an Independent Living Centre in the Setagaya Ward in Tokyo. They serve mostly cerebal palsy users. The disabled persons community there consists mostly of people living with cerebral palsy because there is a school for them nearby. Updates will depend on availability of time and Internet connection.
