    Hi!

    Josh here.  From my experience, the government seems pretty open to people with disabilities coming to Japan (I had no issues getting work visas and even citizenship), or at least it isn’t a stopping factor.

    But the government accepts applications, which means you will need a company who will apply for you.  I think that is the biggest challenge for coming to Japan.

    If you are still a student, you could get a student visa to study at a school here and then find a job here that will offer a visa.

    Have you visited Japan before?  Before discussing living here, it is always good to visit first!

    Hope this helps.

    I love accessible travel so much I started this website and Accessible Japan!
