Welcome to Accessible Japan!
Japan is a truly wonderful country, filled with ancient history and contemporary modern appeal. However, if you have a disability or other specific needs, finding the right information on accessibility can be a challenge.
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 (アクセシブルジャパン) was born – based on a combination of both the good and bad experiences of traveling with a disability, it’s a website dedicated to collecting everything there is to know about accessibility in Japan.
Our goal is to supply you with all the information you need to enjoy your adventure to Japan to the fullest!
