I’m in a _powered_ wheelchair. I am an artist with a show at the Contemporary Museum (MOT) and I am thinking my best bet is the Hotel East 21. They say they have airport hotel, hotel Disney shuttles, but I doubt they do power wheelchairs. What would you recommend?
Also, is Kamakura accessible at all?

What do you mean by “they do power wheelchair”? Do you need a rental power wheelchair?
Although Wilgo doesn’t have a rental powered wheelchair but a manual one, an affiliated company may have powered one.
It would be a good idea to check the report of Tsurugaoka Hachimangu shrine n Kamakura for your information. Unfortunately, historical city, Kamakura, is not fully accessible, but it’s worth to look around.

Since you plan to be going to the Contemporary Museum then it is likely your best option. Here is their accessible room: https://www.hotel-east21.co.jp/en/stay/rooms/barrier-free.php
In general, shuttle buses are not accessible.
Kamakura is great, but there are a lot of places that are not accessible and the hills can be quite steep. But, it is worth a visit for sure – I love it! @melanie_lmt visited as well.

I have my own power wheelchair and it weighs 350lbs. It doesn’t fold. There are places and vehicles where you can use a regular folding wheelchair that you cannot bring one like mine.March 5, 2019 at 12:16 pm #8302
