Help Mark for Invisible Health Conditions

Many disabilities and health conditions can be invisible to the eye. Tokyo’s Help Mark makes it easier for people who may need extra consideration and support in public spaces to move around the city. Since it began in 2012, the program has been adopted by Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) and is now expanding to more communities across Japan.
