A Dream A Day IN TOKYO
A Dream A Day IN TOKYO invites children whose lives depend on round-the-clock medical care or whose life expectancy is very limited due to intractable or uncurable diseases to family trips to Tokyo to help them have memorable time. Our major strength is the ability to develop an itinerary for each family that incorporates each family’s needs and dreams. We coordinate visits to amusement parks etc. and negotiate and arrange meetings with celebrities as each family wishes.
■Supporting Family Trips
Round Trips to and from Tokyo/Transportation During the Trip
We cover the travel expenses to and from Tokyo. For those children judged by the Screening Committee* to require extra medical consideration, a pediatrician accompanies the child in flight for safety.
*A committee consisting of four pediatricians for screening candidate children based on their medical information and physical capacity.
We arrange and cover the costs of accommodation during the stay in Tokyo for three or more nights as well as meals at amusement facilities and event venues. A volunteer staff recruited through supporting companies accompanies the family to facilitate smooth transport and comfortable time in Tokyo.
Reservations and Admission Tickets
We make reservations and purchase admission tickets to amusement parks, events, and other destinations of each family’s preference. Tokyo Disney Resorts and Hakkeijima Sea Paradise are just examples of many popular destinations. Each family’s itinerary is fully tailored to needs and wishes of the family members.
We negotiate with musicians, athletes, or other celebrities on behalf of the families to schedule meetings on request.
Delivering Opportunities to Make Wonderful Family Memories
Founded in 2009, the Dream A Day IN TOKYO has invited over 80 children with intractable diseases and their families to Tokyo as of the end of 2018.

memorable time together inspires the children suffering intractable diseases as
well as their parents and siblings to live and to feel joy of living.

children with intractable diseases with their families takes substantial human
and financial resources as well as time for preliminary and preparatory works.
It is estimated
that there are over 150,000 child patients in Japan fighting intractable
diseases for which treatment methods are not established, and many of them have
limited life expectancy. Shortening the waiting time for them to take our tour
to Tokyo is our major challenge of an urgent priority.
