Gogo Hot Spring is the oldest hot
spring in Japan. The main bathhouse is not very wheelchair
accessible. There are two steps at the main entrance, but no step
at the side entrance. In the bathhouse, wheelchair users have to
use the indoor wheelchairs that it prepares.There
are also about 5 steps to the bath. It
might be difficult for wheelchair users to take a bath there. But
the main bathhouse cannot be reconstructed because it is a
historical building. http://www.dogo.or.jp
Matsuyama Castle stands at the top of 132-meter mountain in the
center of Mastuyama city. There is no step in the route to the
castle, but the hill and ramps are so steep. An aerial tram ride
is the best means of transport for wheelchairs to reach the
castle. Although visitors ascend a few stairs and steps in the way
to the castle after getting off an aerial tram, wheelchair users
can reach the castle with someone’s help. However, wheelchairs
cannot enter the castle tower because the tower is so antique that
it has no lift.
Trams run in Matsuyama city. Some new trams have no step, but the
number of those trams is limited. With help from kind staffs,
wheelchair users can get on and off even trams with a step.
bridges between Japan's main land and Shikoku. Nice island there. The road
is called "Shimanami kaido". It is famous for cycling.
Museums and parks in this area are surely wheelchair accessible. http://www.oideya.gr.jp
