Hi Philip,
Thanks for your comment.
Sorry for my poor English in advance.

I have a friend who had spinal cord injury by an accident
in Japan several years ago and she is a wheelchair driver now.

She encountered many barriers as a wheelchair rider at restaurants and shops,
so she decided to take some action for herself.
She set up a website named "heart barrier free" and started a project.
(sorry Japanese only)
The core concept of this project "heart barrier free" means barriers
of one's heart. Most poeple do not know how to help a wheelchair
driver, because we don't see so much wheelchair in Japan driving
outside. Many wheelchair riders tend to stay at home.
So, she thought that it is important to tell the owners of
restaurants or shops how to help wheelchair users and other disabled persons.
She designed a "HEART BARRIER FREE" sticker.
She teaches to the owners and employees how to treat wheelchair in a
narrow spcae
or steps.
And instead she sells stickers to the shop owners and the owners put
up the sticker
somewhere customers can see from outside.
And now, the number of shops and restaurants with this sticker is
about one hundred.
