    Should we plan first 2 weeks in June or last 2 weeks in July?  (14 days)

    Either will likely have a bit of an overlap with the rainy season: https://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2277.html

    However, after the rainy season it is very hot and humid, much more so than when it starts.  So, earlier is likely nicer weather but less time to plan 🙂

    I am looking through all the tours that are posted on Accesible Travel.  Was wondering when it says “Not Wheelchair Accessible” what that acutally means in the establishments.  i.e. Maybe tatami floors and they don’t want a wheelchair on them, steps, place too narrow etc..  If we were to book a Geisha Show (which says Not Wheelchair Accessible) can we park the wheelchair at entry and carry Matthew to the floor?  He is able to sit on the floor but not walk.  Just wondering… and carrying him will have to be a short distance.

    Only the ones here are accessible, or the guide can make it accessible based on needs:

    However, this is a list from Viator we selected, so if you click on related items you may go to other tours.  Can you share the link to the one you saw?

    Do you tip your tour guide in Japan?

    Nope, Japan is a non-tipping culture.  Same for restaurants etc.

    Pretty nice, huh!
