Reviews for Wheelchair accessible holiday to Japan


review 24 Oct 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

This was a very special holiday, so a difficult question to answer but one thing stands out - the transport systems in Japan are so wheelchair friendly! We used bullet trains, underground, monorail, trams and boats, all with no troubles, but with lots of help from friendly Japanese staff. And, of course, they were all perfectly on time.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The operator were superb in ensuring that accessible needs were catered for. Be clear with them as to what you need and they will ensure that it happens. Our 100 page travel documents looked daunting but meant that the trip went totally smoothly.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not in any major way, but all our guides were local and we used public transport rather than taxis wherever possible (and that was most of the time).

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

For wheelchair users, Japan is a tremendous country to visit as it is so easy to get around (we were largely based in Tokyo, but stayed in Matsumoto and Kyoto, and had a day trip to Hiroshima). And for everyone, the Japanese were fantastic hosts, Japan has a great range of activities, and the food was amazing. And the operator was a superb company to work with to get what we wanted out of the holiday.
