Laura Harvey wants Arsenal to put on a show when they face INAC Kobe in the opening game of their Japan Charity Tour.
The domestic treble winners fly to the Far East on Thursday and will take on the Japanese Champions in a charity match at Tokyo's National Stadium on November 30.
In March, Japan's north east coast was hit by the country's most powerful earthquake since records began and Harvey hopes that Arsenal's tour can do some good.
"We want to try to get as many people as possible to come to all the games and to give something back to those who have lost something over the last 12 months through the disasters," she told www.arsenal.com. "We want to make sure that we give whatever we can - whether that be a photograph, an autograph, a T-shirt or whatever.
"We want to let people know that we want to help them as much as we can. We hope we can put on a show for them that they can enjoy."
Japan's women claimed World Cup glory in the summer and Harvey admits she can't wait to get started. "To be able to go out there and pitch ourselves against that level of opposition is massive," she added. "It's probably a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
"Obviously the exposure over there is massive. With the Japanese women's team having won the World Cup too, again the timing couldn't be better.
"This tour been in the pipeline for a while and now it's something we've managed to do. We often have the exchange the other way around most summers and now it's a great chance for us to do it.
"The timing of it has actually worked out perfectly with the end of our season. To finish the year like this after such a fantastic season is great."
