Raising children in the third place!!



Hello!! Nice to talk to you!!

aco komaru

What!! Ko-chan!! You are approaching sooooo close… … Patting my face softly, please. Although his shy phase is now over… … Perhaps, Ko-chan’ sociability was beginning to grow in the third place… …

In general, “The third place” is “The No.3 place” which means not at home nor at work. For Ko-chan and I, “The third place” would be NPO activities and the neighbouring community center. I want to explain what kind of place… …


(Ko-chan about 5-months, GOKINJO INNOVATION LAB SHIMBASHI in Shinbashi, Tokyo)


An open space without inner ring or exclusive atmosphere

No restriction for children or for mothers … … a community for anybody. That’s why we can talk freely about raising-children with more experienced mothers, or other topics too.

A communication place with a little distance for privacy.

We don’t need to know a person’s background, we can enjoy free and comfortable conversation. Its very hard to talk if there is a power structure, master and man, or relationship with someone etc… The expectation is to have a relationship with a good private distance “Excellent!” and Aco can also relax!

A space to attract new visitors

Because of the atmosphere and activities for both regulars and new comers, everyone can relax and talk freely, and various people come and go. Grandmas, students, men and women talk to Ko-chan!

A neutral place to watch over the growth of Ko-chan and Aco, we really need it!
