      Hello,

      I am traveling with 2 elderly parents – both can walk but only short distances before getting tired.  I am hoping to find a service that can arrange to help me push one of the 2 wheelchairs during our sightseeing in Tokyo.  They will walk some distance and need wheelchair for when they are tired.  This is for a few hours a day for two to three days.  Can you help provide information/availability for late October and a fee structure for this type of help?   

      Thank you in advance.

      Hi, Mishio!

      I can definitely help you. I can arrange a person who can push the wheelchair.

      I need more details, so please look for me on Facebook.

      My name is Hazuki Tochino.

      I am planning on doing a study abroad in Japan. I am a C5 spinal cord injury quadriplegic. I am fairly independent during the day, but I need help getting dressed and getting into my wheelchair in the morning and I need help getting out of my wheelchair and into the bed at night. I plan to take someone with me to help, but if I needed to, could I hire a helper to help me?

      I’ll ask Ms Tochino to reply to you.
