[quote quote=3596]This place looks perfect, we will give it a try. I will get the hotel to call. Thank you so much for this information. I am also in a power wheelchair and do not have a caretaker. My daughter will be with me but she cannot lift me. Thank you again.[/quote]
If you go to a hot spring town there may be more options. But unfortunately, the concern for dealing with overflowing water and cultural aspects of going up steps means that onsen/sento are still mostly inaccessible…
Hopefully the rapidly aging population will force facilities to change!
