Taxis and a Guide for Private Accessible Tour in Tokyo

  • Taxis and a Guide for Private Accessible Tour in Tokyo

    Posted by Unknown Member on October 16, 2018 at 10:14 am

    My friend  and I will be in Tokyo Oct. 17-27. She has difficulty walking, so we would need to take taxis and visit accessible sites.

    Because she needs a lot of rest, half-day tours  would  be best, starting on Saturday October 20, but we would possibly book other half-day tours on Monday Oct 22, Tuesday, October 23 and Friday Oct. 26

    We are interested in art, history, religion, and gardens. I would like to see a Kabuki performance. She would like to experience a tea ceremony. But these are things we might be able to do on our own.

    She can’t risk being jostled by crowds in the subway. But if a “safe-for-her” subway experience is possible, she would love that.

    We already have a person taking us to the Shibuya and Harajuku areas Sunday and neither of us are very interested in shopping.

    We realize we can’t see everything in Tokyo, but we appreciate advice on how to find a guide who can help her safely get to things she and I would like to see.

    Thank you very much.

      Thanks for your advice!

      I’ve put a message for Karen, but the message is not on the site.  Sounds like I made a mistake…  I’ll try again!

    I tried to put some messages to your initial post, but I failed to put them.

    You can explore and find several tours at;

    Accessible Japan Select Tour

    Some of tea ceremony tours are listed;

    Tea Ceremony Experience in Hinode-machi, Tokyo

    Tea Ceremony Experience Guided by English Speaking Instructor in Tokyo

    Private Japanese Tea Ceremony Experience at Gionji Temple in Tokyo

    As you can see, each tour have an English-speaking specialist for each attraction, so you don’t worry about.  However, you and your friend have to go to the location or venue by yourself.

    I manage the wheelchair lift equipped taxi service, so you may get on, or take another transportation such as subway or Japan rail.  Unfortunately, I’m not tour guide with various and detailed knowledges of Japanese culture, but I can support you in transportation and general information.  I will be available some of date and time you mentioned in the message earlier, if you need.
