I ended up going to:
- Fushimi Inari Taisha (which has a new elevator so you can get to the Torii gates!)
- Heian Jingu
- Tetsugaku no Michi (Philosopher’s Path)
- Nijojo (light up)
- Maruyama Park
- Hirano Jinja
I ended up going with Happiness Taxi. Unfortunately, the van they brought had a bit of a tough time with the weight of my wheelchair and the owner seemed a bit concerned about it. They have vans with stronger lifts as well, so, if you do use them, be sure to let them know your combined weight! Also, the driver had the van decked out in pink and stuffed animals and had Ghibli songs on the radio… not exactly my cup of macha tea…
I’ll likely write a little blog about this, but if you have any questions about accessibility please ask!
Here are a few pictures.
