Japan is a truly wonderful country, filled with ancient history and contemporary modern appeal. But being disabled while experiencing this fascinating and exhilarating land can be a bit of a challenge, especially when most of the information on accessibility in Japan is only in Japanese.
Even though you might be adventurous at heart, it’s still a good idea to have some information before you embark on your journey to Japan. This is how Accessible Japan was born – based on a combination of both the good and bad experiences of traveling in a wheelchair, it’s a website dedicated to collecting everything there is to know about accessibility in Japan. We have general information on accessibility, info on trains and the shinkansen bullet train, accessible toilets, a phrasebook for persons with disabilities, a growing database of information – including accessible hotels and tourist attractions – and a blog, full of useful tips and advice. Our main goal is supplying you with all the information you need!
