In Japan, the All Japan Federation of the Deaf (a one-in-a-kind organization) has organized a national campaign under the theme of "Blue the world and Japan! ~Bringing light to sign language, the brilliance of life~" in order to spread awareness that "sign language is a language." We are calling for blue light up implementation in various places.

In order to let many people including residents know that "sign language is a language", we will carry out blue light up in the city in conjunction with the International Day of Sign Language.
