Travel Agent in Japan to assist with booking accommodation

  • Travel Agent in Japan to assist with booking accommodation

    Posted by BilandsInJapan on May 12, 2024 at 10:15 am

    Hi everybody. Our son is physically & intellectually disabled. He uses a manual wheelchair permanently (we assist with his transfers). Last year we spent a lot of trying to plan a trip to Japan for this April (2024), but even with the help of a travel agent here in New Zealand (who we have used numerous times before), we were unfortunately not able to confirm suitable accommodation (for the dates we needed to travel). We ended up going to the US. However, we are still VERY keen to come to Japan (looking at April/May next year) and I was wondering if there are any travel agents / organisations in Japan (English speaking) who could assist us with booking accommodation (which seemed to be the main hurdle for us)? When I was trying to plan last year, I found that despite emailing hotels directly, I either would not hear back, or there would be big delays in hearing back and/or they didn’t seem to answer all of my questions. We would love to make this a reality, but somehow need to find a better way of communicating with hotels in Japan, as to our needs.

    P.S. Hotel and transportation arrangements, as well as tour accompaniment, can be made throughout Japan.

    I will visit Tokyo in September. Have booked Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku. https://sotetsu-hotels.com/en/sunroute/plazashinjuku/rooms/

    I had a question about my commode over the toilet and the hotel responded very quickly to an email. [email protected]

    It is a double room, I don’t know if it will take 3 people.

    Hi,

    I would suggest staying at a larger hotel. The bigger hotel chains like IHG, Accor, Marriott & the like tend to offer more services. The double is unlikely to accommodate 3 people.
