 The Consumers’ Center is a facility that serves as a center for various programs related to consumer life for all residents. It conducts following programs.

Consumers’ Advisory Counter

 Consumer specialists are available to handle complaints and problems concerning consumer life. If, for example, you would like to cancel a contract for a purchased item, are having trouble resolving problems with the local dry cleaner, are having financial difficulties from having spent too much money with your credit card, or are facing other problems in daily life, then take advantage of this advisory service.

Hours:Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (excluding lunch hour [from 12 noon], national holidays and the year-end/New Year holidays)

Daily Life Sundries Market

 At this market people can exchange items for daily living so that nothing is wasted. It is held every Tuesday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the first floor of the Consumers’ Center. It is not held if a national holiday happens to be on a Tuesday or on the fifth Tuesday of the month.

Toy Hospital (To fix broken toys)

 This “hospital” was established out of a desire to nurture in children a sense of taking good care of things. It is located on the first basement level of the Consumers’ Center. Toys that no longer operate properly or make the proper sound are “treated” free of charge. (However, a fee will be charged if special parts must be exchanged.)

Hours:First and third Wednesday of the month, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. (except on national holidays and during the year-end/New Year holidays)

Inquiries: Livelihood and Economy Section, Living Environment Department (ext. 2545) or Consumers’ Center (Tel: 0422-43-7874)

For Those with a New Pet Dog

 All pet dogs 91 days old or older must be registered once in their lifetime and vaccinated against rabies once a year under the Rabies Prevention Law. Registration can be done at the Civil Affairs Section (General Counter) or at any branch office. The fee is ¥3,000 per dog. For vaccinations against rabies (kyoken-byo yobo-chusha), have your pet vaccinated at your local veterinary clinic and receive a vaccination certificate; then bring the certificate to the Civil Affairs Section (General Counter) or any branch office to obtain a rabies vaccination slip and tag. You must pay a fee of ¥550.
