Many types of people live in our communities: young and old, and persons with disabilities or illnesses. Some of these people need support in some form.

After the Great East Japan Earthquake, people expressed a desire to help elderly and disabled persons, and to revitalize their communities.

When individuals think and act on those thoughts, society will change.

We support the development of communities in which everyone supports one another, and all are able to lead a rich life.

What We Do

  • Broad-leaved evergreen forests provide ground cohesion and resist fires, and we support tree planting to protect against natural disasters.
  • This fund was established with the proceeds of a charity art auction, for the purpose of passing on Tohoku’s treasured history and culture, and creating a new sense of value.
  • We provide vehicles specially equipped to support the mobility of persons with disabilities and older residents of communities in their daily lives.
  • The Nippon Foundation and Tottori Prefecture are working together to address issues associated with the contraction and aging of Japan’s population, by making Tottori ‘Japan's Most Livable' Prefecture.
