More accessible hotels ahead of Tokyo Olympic Games of 2020

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has praised a proposal put forward by the Japanese government to increase the number of accessible hotel rooms in the country.

Under plans announced in June, the Japanese government is aiming to amend the Cabinet Order to ensure that as standard, at least one per cent of guest rooms be fully accessible to wheelchair users. At present, the current standard requires hotels which have 50 or more guest rooms to make just one room accessible regardless of the total number of guest rooms.
