Ever since watching "Lost in Translation" years ago I've had a desire to visit Tokyo. To "celebrate" the 25th anniversary of my injury in a couple of years, I figured then might be the time. But before I dig too deep into planning, there are questions, and a few concerns, that I have.
After a search of hotels and areas to stay, my initial thoughts are to stay at the Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku. It appears they have several "universal rooms". What I of course can't tell by the website alone is if the beds will accommodate a patient lift. The bed itself is electric, with a head that raises. What is the best way to confirm if the bed will work with the lift?
I did a quick Google search of patient lift rentals in Shinjuku, but didn't find anything. Not sure if such a thing is common to rent there, so I may have to bring my own.
One concern I have is advising airport staff in Tokyo how to handle my power chair, and also how to properly lift me.
