Contact Us



Liss System (Living Support Service System) was born in autumn 1993 as a response to the desperate demand from the members of “Moyai no kai”. Many asked for help to organize a funeral and to attend to other matters after their death. Many also told us that they needed a guaranty for hospitalization or for moving into a senior residence. Since its inauguration, Liss System achieved solid results and in February 2000, it established “NPO Japan Pre-need Agreement Settlement Organization”, an agency that monitors and validates Liss Systemʼs performance of contracted tasks and makes payment for its service. In November of the same year, Liss System reorganized itself into a nonprofit organization responsible for performing mandatary duties of the pre-need agreement. As a result, the scope of its activities has widened and the quality of its performance improved to fully serve the needs of its members.

Our Goal

りすシステムが目指すもの Liss System pursues a “social security system of the 21st century” that enables the people to live till the end of life without compromising their values and styles and to prepare their death based on self-responsibility. In April 2000 “Act on Voluntary Guardianship Contract” came into force, which has made it possible for Liss System to provide our members with uninterrupted support when they are alive, when they lose the capacity of judgement and when they die. What we are proposing is a new life style by “pre-need agreement”, which responds to the diversified values of the day and which is accessible with ease.
