Glad you got in touch with @wilgo, Sumii-san is great!
As for bleach, standard bleach is sold in any drug store, so it should be easy enough to find.
For medical equepment, you may want to contact the hotels you are staying at as many have a shower chair. The Keio hotel in Shinjuku has great access and recently renovated their accessible rooms, so that may answer your shower chair and hotel question.
For Kabuki and Sumo, Sumii-san is the guy to talk to 🙂 He may also help you get to Mt Fuji. If you prefer to go from Shimizu, we can try to find another rental place.
All curbs in Japan are cut and sidewalks are generally smooth (but some aren’t). The new fish market is 100% accessible: https://www.accessible-japan.com/places/japan/tokyo/koto/attractions/toyosu-fish-market/
Also, since you are on a cruise, @twoboysmom00 may be able to give some tips as well since she and her family went on one a few years ago.
Looking forward to helping you enjoy Japan!
