Traveling by wheelchair in Japan

Tokyo Podcast 47: Traveling in Japan by Wheelchair

How accessible is Japan for someone traveling in a wheelchair? With it’s busy sidewalks and endless stairs in and out of the train stations, is Japan closed off to someone in a wheelchair or is it surprisingly accessible? On this show I talk to Ashley Olson who runs the website Wheelchair Traveling about her recent trip to Japan and the many surprises she encountered and why she is eager to come back.

I’ve also been shooting a lot more video recently with my latest one being all about Exploring Tokyo on the Yamanote Line. Check it out below and send me any suggestions you have for future videos.
