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?
