Tokyo café supports inclusion by hiring the deaf
A café near the University of Tokyo in Japan gives jobs to deaf people, who communicate with customers by writing and using sign language.
The Sign with Me café was opened in 2011 by 44 years old Masahiro Yanagi, who himself is deaf.
The café now serves as a great place for university students and regular customers who enjoy meal with their friends and also get a chance to learn sign language and communicate with the deaf staff.
Masahiro was motivated to start the café as he found that companies that hire the deaf do not provide them with interesting jobs.
The ordering is done in a simple way. Customers who come to the café point at food pictures and when required, make themselves understood through writing, sign language and gestures.
