For this interview, we sat down with Ms. Yoshiko Arai, founder of Nanbyo Café Omusubi . Nanbyo Café Omusubi is an organization that aims to provide opportunities for people with intractable diseases to voice their troubles and share information with each other. (“Nanbyo” is a Japanese term for rare and intractable diseases, while “Omusubi” is a play on words linking “rice ball” and “to tie” which are “Omusubi” and “Musubu,” respectively.) In addition to operating Nanbyo Café Omusubi, Ms. Arai balances the management of her own intractable diseases and her work as a social worker. In response to the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, Nanbyo Café Omusubi is currently holding its events online. Ms. Arai hopes to broaden activities in which people with intractable diseases speak up and share their stories to contribute to the creation of the society that is friendlier to everyone.
