Reaction to “Planes, Trains, and Canes” (Season 1 Ep 5)

The word reaction appears in bold black letters on a white background with a black border.

In this episode Mona visits Tokyo, Japan.

Well I have to say that Japan is at the top of the list when it comes to accessibility. The sound cues in the train stations and on crosswalks are very helpful and the cane guides are very well placed. The people in Tokyo are very helpful.

I enjoyed this episode and all the technology in it. I hope that every city will learn from Tokyo and improve the accessibility.

I hope that this documentary shines a spotlight on the fact that a blind person can travel around the world. I hope that this will encourage those in the blind and visually impaired community to have the courage to get out there and explore the world. Do not be afraid to ask for help, it is all part of the journey. I have been encouraged by this documentary not necessarily to travel the world but to just want to explore my community.
