  Dogo Hot Spring    

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.

  Matsuyama Castle     

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.   http://www.matsuyamajo.jp  (no English)

  Iyotetsu Trams     
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.
  
  
  

  Imabari        

Many 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.
