    I am a mom of a 20 year old with CP in a power wheelchair.  We live in Louisiana.  He graduated high school May 2018.  Japan is and has been his passion and a dream trip!  He will travel in his manual chair.  We are a family of 4 and looking to travel May 27~28 to June 8, 2019.   Is May to June rainy season?  Is this a good time to travel in a wheelchair?  What do we do if it rains?   I guess we will fly into Narita and fly out of ???.  How do we get from airport to hotel while maneuvering him and our luggage – I don’t understand how?  Do we keep the hotel and take backpacks to all the places we want to go or do we also take our luggage?  If we take our luggage, how?  How do we pack – light – walking shoes – anything dressy?  We want to, I think, start in Tokyo and end up in Hiroshima.  It this the best start?  Do all we can in 10-11 days.  I am just overwhelmed and really do not know where to begin or how to plan this trip.  Is there any Ryokan’s for wheelchairs?  And that Rail Pass – my head is spinning.  What is the rule of thumb for how much can be done in a day?  I am so very lost!  Help Help Help  We want to have a trip of a life time.  I don’t want to ruin it with so much anxiety over this.  Can someone start with the basic step-by step from the airport?  I see all the blogs about maneuvering the small towns and cities but nothing on the baby steps.
