    Hi Ivan!

    I have CP and use a power wheelchair.  I visited Japan in 2000, 2003, 2004, 2006, and then moved to Japan permanently in 2007 – I even have citizenship!

    Now, someone like myself who likes it here enough to move here, is possibly a bit biased, but I have not really experienced any prejudice more than anywhere else.  Sure, there is some prejudice, but it is rare and more of a thing you will encounter if you are living here (work, marriage, etc) not just visiting.

    Guest trumps disability when in Japan. People here are generally excited that people are interested in Japan.

    Can you share the articles?  I would be interested in seeing them.

    If you have any questions, keep them coming – that is what this forum is for!
