    Hi

    Does anyone know of any accessible taxis in Hakone that can take a power wheelchair?

    Thanks!

    There are companies called HSA in Odawara (probably 20 min. by car from Hakone-Yumoto Station) and Hotoku Taxi in Hakone-Yumoto. They have a large cab with electric lift so they will be candidates?

    Websites (Japanese)

    Maybe there are some cars with lift for rent in Hakone/Odawara area but there was no good result by my quick search today.

      Thank you very much. I didn’t realize how close it was to Odawara!

    I ended up using the train/cable car for the main part of my trip, but also the bus. The ramps into the bus where quite steep, but the drivers were all very kind.

    While most buses don’t strap you in, you MUST in Hakone since the mountainous roads have lots of curves and ups and downs.

    You can see some of the route here:
