    I know each country has its owned prescribed building/construction code and if these laws embrace disabilities then there are minimum or general standards that must be followed for buildings, structures and public spaces. In the US i am aware of the ADA standards. Likewise in Japan, there are strict standards for compliance and adherence to laws on disabilities. Notwithstanding, there must still be “wiggle” room for adjustments and adaptability (of such structures) as there cannot be a strict “one size fits all” approach to physical disabilities. Compliance of the bare minimum is a good step towards the right direction.

    Awareness and (re)education  of the general populace is key.
