    I’ve always wanted to visit Japan but I am extremely scared to do so. I have SMA and am bound to a heavy, electric wheelchair. I can’t stand up at all and am too heavy for my carer to lift me which means I have to use hoists when toileting. I’ve heard there are plenty of spacious, accessible toilets in Japan, but are there many with hoists?

    Unfortunately, even after being here for years, I don’t think I’ve seen a hoist in a public toilet.  Even in hotels, people need to rent one.

    @bookman @kenigor have you seen any?

    Sorry for the bad news

    Unfortunately, I’ve also never seen a toilet with a hoist here. You may have to bring your own or rent one. Sorry :/
