Okinawa is aiming to be an accessible tourist destination. Accessible Okinawa is the Tourist Information Center for seniors and people with disabilities, such as wheelchair users, visual and hearing impairments, mentally disabled people, also people who need nursing, children and foreign tourists in order to enjoy traveling to Okinawa with safely and security.
Is there a facility with wheelchair accessibility? How can I go to a restroom and take a bath during the travel? Can an assistance dog stay in the hotel?
FOR YOUR PLEASURE
We would like to provide accessible tourist information; more choices, and less worry to help you before and during the travel.

For People who Use Naha Airport as a Transit

Reading system (voice guide) for people, such as visual disabilities.
Made with DAISY Standard, Daisy Talking Books. Play them with corresponding equipment, then you can smoothly access to information such as headings, contents, and chapters.
At Tourist Information Center for People with Disabilities and Seniors, we have received many requests from people with visual disabilities that they want to travel Okinawa by a bus.
So this time, we have comprised various bus access information with DAISY Standard to various Okinawa tourism spots, such as Shuri Castle, Gyokusendo, Churaumi Aquarium, Okinawa main island, Miyako Island, and Ishigaki Island, so that people with disabilities can freely travel wherever they want to go.
If you ride on a bus in Okinawa, you may have fun travel, that you cannot experience by a taxi and a rental car, such as enjoying talking with the driver and local seniors.
