Help Needed in Japan

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


One of my wife's best friends is currently in Japan.  We knew her Japanese husband is a bit crazy, but we have just found out this evening that he has been hurting/beating one of the kids.

Does anyone know of any refuge/support network that she can contact? Ive not mentioned the city just in case, but I will PM anyone with specific details who knows anywhere  or any kind of support network where she can take her kids to be safe. I've tried searching but it seems there its one of those things that is culturally ignored.

 

Its a long shot here, I know.  but we gotta try. Thanks in advance.

A google search with the term , "women's shelter japan" seems to bring up some info :thumbsup:

Thanks Tom .We tried that already. The top result is basically just a press release, and the site basically has everything but a directory of the shelters they offer. Plus, they are far away from Tokyo, but still in a major city.
P.s. we are overseas at the moment so maybe the search result is different

Just to add, I did not check the location but if your able to contact someone will probably have a list of places in certain areas.

I have a good friend who lived in Japan for a couple of decades but he has lived in the Philippines for the last 10 years.  He is quite familiar with Japanese culture.  (Too much so in my opinion as he has picked up the horrible habit of making loud noises while slurping up noodles Yuch).

I've had a couple of drinks so I'm not much use to you tonight but if you would like me to ask him to chat with you I can do that in the morning.  Just PM me if you would like that.
