Ashinaga Rainbow House are emotional support facilities in Kobe, Tokyo, Ishinomaki, Rikuzentakata, and Sendai. In response to the 1995 Kobe Hanshin Earthquake, Ashinaga created its first facility in Kobe to help children cope with their grief through sharing, play, art, and music. It is a safe place for children to share their feelings with other children who have lost parents. Over 120 programs are held each year across five Rainbow Houses in Japan, supporting 1,300 orphaned children and 500 guardians.

There are training programs for staff and volunteers to become Facilitators at the Rainbow House. Facilitators learn how to be attentive listeners and about grief counseling. Facilitator training is held for more than 50 volunteers each year
