    Hello everyone,

    Back from Japan (especially Tokyo) last Tuesday, and delighted with what we saw and experienced.

    We hired a manual wheelchair through (thanks Josh). It was delivered and pick up by the rental agency to and from the hotel.

    The Tokyo underground is really easy to get around in a wheelchair (thanks to the lifts at almost every station).

    In Nikko, Toshogu is accessible right up to the temple. I stayed at the bottom of the steps (, but access up to there has been made easier by the ramp currently under construction, which avoids the first part of the climb up to the steps (you have to get the construction site gate opened).

    In Hakone, it is preferable to be helped to push the wheelchair, as the paths are very steep, just as in Tokyo to get up to the Tokyo Tower.

    Hope it helps, enjoy your travel to Japan.
