Yu  -  English writing check

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 make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable by providing you with English information about wheelchair accessibility in Japan. Japan has many places worth visiting and accessible for wheelchair users. I hope that more and more people will enjoy traveling in Japan, regardless of their physical conditions.
