Local Characteristics

Although only 9 minutes from Osaka Station and 4 minutes from Shin-Osaka Station by train, the JR Suita Station area retains a downtown-like atmosphere. The area was once called “Suita Village,” and many historical and cultural places remain. There are six shopping streets within walking distance, and you can talk to local grandmothers just by walking around. This is a very attractive area for those who enjoy communicating with people.


We cherish being a place where everyone, from students, office workers,couples, families, kids, the elderly, to travelers and foreigners, ranging from 0 to 120 years old, can casually drop by. 【Reducing ‘Solo Parenting’】 Isolated parenting can lead to child abuse. I was one of the victims. I want to reduce the number of people like my mother, who had no one to rely on, and children like me. This includes mothers who are just after giving birth. 【Enjoying Childcare and One’s Own Life】 To create a society where children can have hope, the adults around them need to be happy first. I want to increase the number of people who don’t give up on what they want to do because of childcare, and who enjoy their own lives along with childcare. 【Opportunities to Learn About Childcare Before Marriage】 Honestly, you don’t really understand how difficult parenting is until you have a child. But once you have a child, there’s no turning back. If there was an opportunity to experience childcare beforehand, it would be helpful in thinking about the future. 【As a Place for Children】 I myself was saved by a ‘third place’ when I felt uncomfortable at school and home. I hope this house can be a shelter like the one that saved me. Adults other than parents and teachers are waiting here. 【Exposure to Diverse Values and the World】 Being exposed to different differences and values makes people kinder. Fun and interesting encounters expand our world. Our home can be the starting point for changing tomorrow’s self.
