Are you sure you want to leave ?
I’m landing in Japan next week for my second trip to Japan and have decided to head to Shirakawa-Go as a side trip when I’m in Kanazawa. I’ve already looked over the street view and know I can manage most of the village itself, I was wondering though if anyone in a wheelchair has been up the Ogimachi Castle Observation Deck. There are only a few photos and not a wonderful view from Google Streetview.
From what I can see, it looks entirely doable to me as I’m a very mobile and able wheelchair user but I don’t really want to get 2/3’s the way up and have to turn back again. I should also add that I have a Smart Drive MX2 power assist for a bit more oomph.
