    Something like Shinjuku or Ueno might be good as they have access to several train lines nearby.

    Even with a unit bath that has drains on the floor, the staff will want to put the shower chair in the bath tub. This is likely the “correct” location, but adds the challenge of lifting her legs into the tub and standing in the tub. Also, the shower chair will fit in the tub, but it may not be a perfect fit and if the chair is a bit wider, it may not be as stable as you would like. Would that work for your mother?

    As mentioned in the article, unit baths have drains in the floors, so – if you aren’t too wild! – you can put the shower chair on more stable ground outside the tub and wash there without much risk of flooding. ( I would recommend removing the toilet paper from beside the toilet though!). Would that work?

    Will start looking for places, but just wanted to get a better grip of what you feel is possible (or would rather avoid).
