A group of mothers and their advocates submitted to the government Wednesday about 28,000 signatures from people seeking a better child care system after they were inspired by an anonymous blog post written by a frustrated mother.

The group visited the Diet building and handed over the signatures to Health, Labor and Welfare Minister Yasuhisa Shiozaki.

The blog continues to garner the attention of the public and government. The group conducted the petition online, addressing it to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
