The Active Museum, Women’s Museum on War and Peace, is the basis of memory to convey to the next generation how cruelly Asian women suffered from Japan’s military sexual slavery, demonstrating the responsibility Japan has to take.

We use good care to listen the victimized women and take up the facts of victimization with seriousness. In addition, we hope that any armed conflict under way will come to an end and conflict caused violence against women be eradiated. We will make every effort to create a peace-prevailing society without war where women are able to enjoy their human rights, using the Museum as basis of activities.

Without your cooperation and support, we would be unable to pursue the objects and develop activities more. We sincerely hope that you will us a hand by joining support membership or club membership.
