    Hello,

    I have been to Dejima and it was pretty good for accessibility (considering it is a historical site).  One of the buildings (captain’s room) even has an elevator in it so you can get to the second floor.  Other buildings have separate entrances/ramps.  It has been a few years, so my memory is a bit foggy, but I remember feeling I was satisfied/pleased with the amount I could access. (Obviously, there may be some areas which may be inaccessible).

    Nara goes even father back in my memory! And it was 20 years ago… but I believe the park was reasonably accessible and I could get to the Buddha at Todaiji. (Map with wheelchair route: http://www.todaiji.or.jp/english/guidance_e.html)

    Here is a barrier free / accessibility guide from Nara: https://narashikanko.or.jp/en/barrierfree/

    Maybe @melanie_lmt or @joanp have visited more recently?

    If there is a particular place, let me know and I can dig deeper!
