Kakogawa-shi begins to promote barrier free environment


Kakogawa-shi, Hyogo Prefecture next to Osaka has begun to support a private enterprise to make its store or business barrier free for a person with disabilities. 

Meal menu with a braille, the folding slope over a ramp for a wheelchair user, interpreters dispatch to an event, and others are covered by the city between the full amount and the half price of the cost.

"The Person with Disabilities Discrimination Dissolution Law" has been enforced since April, 2016. Such as refusing servicing for reason of the disability, discriminatory treatment is forbidden.
