Hi. Looking for advice. Can you please advise if there are care agencies that can be contacted in the major Japanese cities to provide support to a visitor with spinal cord injury? Thank you.December 12, 2018 at 11:13 am #7331
Do you mean provide personal care (showering, getting in/out of bed, toilet, etc)?
Since everything here goes through the city government and health care system, there really aren’t any temporary companies. There is only one company that may help (https://www.aelclub.com/). Please send me a private message (after accepting my friend request) and I can give you the person’s email (I don’t want to post it in the open).

I have sent you a friend request. After you accept it I can send you a private message with the contact email for travel assistants.
For transportation, please see: https://www.accessible-japan.com/transportation/
And for rentals: https://www.accessible-japan.com/renting-wheelchairs-hoists-japan/
There aren’t really any night markets like in other places in Asia (with food stalls, and small stores etc), but places like Hoppy Dori with outside restauants might be close: https://www.timeout.com/tokyo/restaurants/hoppy-dori
Hope this helps.

Regarding night markets, one thing that I can think of in Japan are the festivals that accompany the fireworks. Particularly in July and August, these are night time events with lots of street food vendors. The food is typical Japanese street food like okonomiyaki or takoyaki, but most likely a bit overpriced. The atmosphere is good, but be prepared for crowds.
