    Yes, it should be alright. At least, that’s what I did. I’d recommend getting off the wheelchair and folding it as soon as you can, so that the driver doesn’t have time to get flustered or stressed out. I didn’t have any trouble with that particular trip, but I’ve had other experiences were I had to negotiate with drivers thinking that I couldn’t climb the steps, etc.

    By the way, Shirakawago is totally worth it even if you can’t enter most buildings. It’s really different from other places in Japan and, if you take an early bus, it doesn’t feel that crowded.
