Hello! My name is Yu Sato. I have cerebral palsy. My
role in the Japan Accessible Tourism Center is to check our
leader’s English translation on the website. Actually, I engage in
translation work at a publishing company. I really enjoy learning
English. I also like traveling abroad. So I would be happy if I can

Japan, regardless of their physical conditions.
