Narita to Sheraton Miyako Hotel Wheelchair Commute

Hi, Im visiting Japan on a Disability Conference going to be held on July 1. I will be traveling from India which happens to be a long hr journey.

Im a person with no mobility and I will have just a person traveling with me for assistance, so I will have to plan a hassle free commute from Narita International Airport to Sheraton Miyako Hotel

Are the LIMOUSINE BUS from airport wheelchair accessible? So I can board the bus on my wheelchair? or are there accessible taxis available from airport which I can prebook online?

Please share your info/comments to guide me. Thanks in advance

This is what the bus operator says - limousinebus.co.jp/en/…accessibility.html . And here's a third-party site - japan-accessible.com/transport/…narita.htm .

Here's a link for some taxi companies: accessible.jp.org/tokyo/en/useful/trans.html

Seems like the NEX train to Shinagawa, then reserved taxi is the best approach.

Unfortunately, you cannot ride the limobus in a wheelchair:

You might have to hire a wheelchair accessible car:

You'll do fine with English.

You ask for assistance at the train station. One or 2 station attendants will accompany you, carrying a portable ramp to navigate steps, between platform and train car etc.

"Passengers using wheelchairs are requested to approach a station staff member. The staff member will escort you to the platform and help you get on or off the train. ...... "

I'd imagine you'll be well treated, as tourists are treated well anyway.

I'd start here - www.japan-accessible.com/city/tokyo.htm (has accessibility info) and here - http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2164.html .

Take a look at what interests you and then come back and ask more questions. I'd suggest taking a look at Shinjuku, Asakusa and Akihabara.

Ironically, your hotel seems pretty inconvenient to me. Depending on your budget, I'd suggest trying to get in to Tokyo from the airport by train, and then using that "savings" to take taxis around Tokyo.
