The lowdown on being disabled in Japan

The world's eyes are on Tokyo with the Paralympic Games taking place - but what's it like to live in Japan if you're disabled?

Mizuki Hsu grew up in Kyoto as a wheelchair-user. Now a mother-of-two and working for Google she says job hunting in Japan can be fraught if you disclose you're disabled - which you have to for its quota system.

Josh Grisdale was born and raised in Canada, but became a Japanese citizen a few years ago. He says the accessible bathroom situation and electronic toilets in Japan are tip-top but accessible escalators are terrifying contraptions.

From house-hunting to nights out, we've got it covered in this whistle-stop tour of Japan.
