KOTO reminiscence method does not offer excitement by watching someone else …but recall their own past experiences by themselves

KOTO reminiscence method presents neither a quiet KOTO concert only nor funny and cheerful party

Several years ago, Ms. Kanako Watanabe, president of KOTO plan, thought about music events at welfare facilities every day and felt something uncomfortable about an recreation time.
Staffs were playing a guitar loudly, and singing their favorite songs, and only they were laughing…
She was wondering…”if residents are really enjoying? looks like only staffs are enjoying…” ”if she want her parents to live here?”
Indeed, she heard opinions from 30 residents. ”too loud…bad taste… we are too old to listen to such music…we are not kids and every day’s short plays are a little too much…stupid…”

She strongly wished she would give them moments in which they feel happiness by recalling their old memories.
KOTO reminiscence method, thus created, offers moments in which residents recall their own good memories, but not an entertainment by watching a music player.
