Hi there,

Its quite a complicated area to travel around. As there are often mountain directly between cities and you may have to make quite some detours. I recommend reading the following page for details:


Disabled access is available at bigger cities like Takayama, Matsumoto, Kanazawa and Kyoto but not always at smaller stations, such as when visiting the Kiso Valley, in such a case, you can always ask the station staff for assistance.

Hope this helps,
