Adoption in Japan and Kumamoto’s “Yurikago”


Since it opened in 2007 there has been a lot of controversy over a hospital in Kumamoto that allows parents to leave their babies with no questions asked. What do you think about this?


1. Adoption in Japan is still relatively rare. Why do you think that is?

2. What do you think are the good or bad points of allowing parents to anonymously leave their baby with no questions asked?

3. Many people say that child abuse is becoming more of a problem in Japan. Are there things the government or people can do to prevent child abuse?
