    Hi, My husband (on wheelchair) and I are planning to visit Japan (7 Dec to 10 Jan), but I’m too disappointed! I can’t find the suitable place for us in Tokyo! We need an apartment or wide studio with doors width 80cm (all doors.. entrance, rooms, elevator, the wide toilet..) with washing machine and small kitchen in affordable price. Any help please I looked at many booking websites but no measurements or clear photos available I contacted the hosts but they don’t reply with the needed info and details! They can’t understand that the 1cm can make a different and they can’t imagine how my husband will use the toilet with his toilet chair so the space is important not a handle hanged on the wall!

    Did you look at the various Oakwood properties? https://www.discoverasr.com/en

      Thanks Heather,

      Unfortunately only 1 choice available in my dates, I contacted them to ask for the measurements and photos

    hi check this website if you havent yet


    they recommend wheelchair accessible hotels all over Japan and other information that can help with planning your Japan trip. I always use this site, so helpful! Hope this helps!

      Thanks, Yes I took a look but most of them are rooms only without small kitchen and washing machine, or too expensive for me

    AirBNB may be good to check, or there is a similar service from Rakuten:

      I checked Airbnb and contacted the hosts but only 1 is accessible and it is too far from the centre of the city.

      I will see the other site

    Does it HAVE to be Tokyo? What about Yokohama? It would likely be more affordable . . .

    Have you looked at the Citadines in Shinjuku, they have 2 properties that state that they are wheelchair accessible and include a launderette, microwave, refrigerator.
