dedicated volunteer “Toy Doctors” in Miyazaki

Thirty dedicated volunteer “Toy Doctors” in our town, Miyazaki, run an organization called The Toy Hospital (omocha-no-biyouin in Japanese.)

As you have might have guessed, they mend broken toys. Among them are retirees, public employees, students, and others from various professions.

The Toy Hospital operates every Saturday and Sunday in the Community Center downtown. Kids bring in their broken toys, get them mended — and pay for the service with a smile.

All toys admitted. No health insurance required.
