    Child care
        English-speaking childcare givers are available upon request. Since the Hiroshima Conference Center does not have a suitable room for this purpose, children should be looked after in the parents' hotel room. The cost is 1,700 yen (~ $15 US) per 2 hours (plus the caretaker's transportation). The cost can be shared if 2 or 3 families request the service at the same time. The local organizer will contact the childcare giver group (or company) upon request from interested participants.
