    hey everyone

    Off to visit the Yamagata Barrier Free Tour Center! They offer many fun outdoor activities in Yamagata prefecture. Check out their website (only Japanese): http://yamagata-bftc.jp/

    I’ll share some of the trip as it goes here in the forum.

    The shinkansen bullet train has an accessible seat but it is very narrow!

    There is a an accessible toilet as well.

    Will update again soon!

    ‪After the vineyard, we went ind visited a sake brewery (samples enjoyed and compared of course). The need for carts at the brewery, means there are ramps everywhere!‬

    ‪They can make branded sake as well, should we make an “Accessible Sake”? 😎‬

    ‪And to end a great day, had an amazing meal at the onsen. ‬

    ‪And because the onsen was the former vacation home of feudal lord Uesugi Kenshin, there were replicas of armor on display- you can even try some on!
