- Things to know before you go like wheelchair sizes, guide dogs, the JR pass, disability ID
- Information on how to get around on Tokyo's trains, subways, buses and more
- Tips on shops, restaurants, and accessible toilets
- Detailed accessibility reviews for many of Tokyo's best tourist attractions
