Human Rights Foreign Language Counseling Services
Due to being a foreigner, there are cases that they are verbally and openly rejected such as being refused to move in, or rent an apartment. It is necessary to recognize the diversity of culture, understand and respect the lifestyle of foreigners, and to eliminate prejudice and discrimination against them.
The Ministry of Justice's Human Rights Protection Organization launched a "Human Rights Foreign Language Consultation Telephone Hotline Service" in 6 foreign languages and the "Human Rights Foreign Language Consultation Internet Services" in 2 foreign languages, while launching the "Human Rights Counseling Center for Foreigners" under the National Legal Affairs Bureau, and Regional Legal Affairs Bureau, providing Human Rights Counseling for foreigners who have limited capabilities to communicate in Japanese.
