Thanks for many comments.

I found I've forgotten one important explanation. Sorry.

The concept of Heart Barrier Free Project is different from Wheelmap.
(I'm an ambassador of Wheelmap.org in Japan and talked on this with
Raul and Chris - the developer of wheelmap.org - several weeks ago.)
Wheelmap.org's evaluation criterias are phisical ones.
On the other hand, Heart Barrier Free Project's evaluation criteria is
very subjective.
A restaurant may be tagged with wheelchair=no if there are steps at
the entrance.
But, If the owners and employees have a warm heart to welcome disabled persons,
 and have some lecture on disability, they can lift a wheelchair and
can help to go to
 toilets and can put on a sticker in front of their restaurants.
Disabled persons like wheelchair drivers can assess the hospitarity of
the restaurant.
Several week ago, I consulted Raul about "wheelchair=welcoe" tag.
But, he thinks it may confuse users of wheelmao.org.
So, I proposed more generic tag.
