Tokyo Tower is lit up in blue on World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, 2018, in Tokyo's Minato Ward. More than 120 facilities across Japan participated in similar light-up events. At Tokyo Tower, rapper Gomess performed to express his feelings as a person with autism. Gomess said, "I want people to naturally accept that everyone differs a little from each other." For every 100 people, one to two have autistic symptoms. It's difficult for many people with autism to live in society because many people think that their problems are attributable to their character. (Mainichi)
