House of Sharing has offered English language tours on the third Saturday of every month.
The tour is planed for visitors who want to look around "Museum of Sexual Slavery by Japanese Military" and meet "the victims of Japanese military sexual slavery during WWII", so called Japanese military 'Comfort Women'.
The House of Sharing was opened as a shelter for the victims of Japanese military 'Comfort Women' in 1992.
The Museum of Japanese Military Sexual Slavery was opened in the House of Sharing in 1998,
which is the world’s first museum that has the main subject of wartime sex slaves.
9 victims are living together at the House of Sharing now.
