  Sand Onsen 

Ibusuki is famous for sand Onsen. "Sunamushi kaikan SARAKU" is popular tourist spot, but stairs to Onsen and no accessible facility. "Yamakawa natural Sunamushi Onsen" is less steps. Problem is the location. Needs human's help.

  Yakushima    
UNESCO nature world heritage. Subtropical island with ancient cedar forest. Waking in the forest and watching giant cedars is main attraction. You know it is impossible to walk on real nature mountain road on wheelchair. No any wheelchair accessible trail in the forest. Not suitable destination for wheelchair travelers.
