At Kyoto City, we are working hard to move forward with the "Kyoto Universal Tourism Promotion Project" as part of our environment improvement plan allowing anyone and everyone to enjoy sightseeing in Kyoto. Under this plan, we are making efforts for private facilities to become barrier-free for people of all abilities and enhance the quality of Kyoto as a tourist city.
Kyoto Universal Sightseeing Guide
This is a website dedicated to information on Kyoto’s Universal Sightseeing Experience.
You will find information on barrier-free facilities at tourist destinations, restrooms, and restaurants, and even model courses and where to rent wheelchairs.

Inquiries can be made about in-city barrier-free sightseeing info, entrance discount info for people with disabilities (escorts), time needed to do tours, plus much more info, advice and cautions.
