Through sheer willpower alone, Hisako Nakano founded a free lodgings facility, Shion-ryō, in 1950, managing the facility by herself for her last remaining 20 years. During this time, Nakano continued shining her light on ex-convicts, homeless drifters, and all those considered to be in the lowest ranks of society. Nakano was born in 1897 in present-day Matsuzaki, Yurihama, and played an active role as a social worker and a probation officer in Tottori City, dedicating half of her life to public welfare. In 1964, she was awarded Japan’s “Medal with Blue Ribbon” for her public service.

 

純粋に個人の力で無料宿泊所「四恩寮」を1950(昭和25)年創設して、20余年の間これを独力で経営。刑余者、浮浪者など、社会の最も底辺をさまよう人々を照らし続けました。1897(明治30)年、松崎西向寺(湯梨浜町松崎)で誕生。鳥取市で民生委員や保護司として活躍し、半生を社会福祉のために捧げました。1964(昭和39)年、藍綬褒章(らんじゅほうしょう)を受章。
