    Hi

    @ohayotravel did an amazing job, but will add one more link for you to check out:

    I should also warn you, even for people from Japan with fully certified service dogs are still often refused entry at some locations like restaurants. It is illegal to do so, but most stores/restaurants aren’t aware of this. That is why having a temporary certification will help.

    I don’t want to discourage you from visiting (quite the opposite, we want you to come!), but think you should be aware that this may happen. If it does, just remember that your attempt to go in places will be helping others who will follow after you.
