Introduction, Recommendations and Barrier Free Functions
Excel Isezaki (JRA) is the horseracing off-track betting parlours of JRA, Japan Racing Association, in Isezaki-cho, Naka-ku, Yokohama-City. The facility is open only when the races are held, and it’s closed otherwise.
It has seven stories, but the accessibe toilets are on the first and sixth levels. This time we investigated the one on the first.
This toilet was only compatible with wheelchairs, but there were handrails at four parts, which were placed at very convenient points; you could support your back with one when moving from your wheelchair to the toilet.
Barrier Free Information
Easily accessible to the place, building, shop with wheelchairs because there is no gap, below 2 cm if any, or because there is a ramp.
The entrance easy to go in through.
The accessible toilet has automatic sliding door that opens and closes with the button.
The entrance or exit is 80 cm or more in width.
The entrance is on the first floor.
Equipped with wheelchair oriented elevator. Comes with mirrors and buttons on the sides, spacious enough for wheelchair users: 140 cm in width, 135 cm in length or over, 80 cm or over of effective width at the entrance or exit.
Even better if it comes with braille or audio guide.
You don’t need to use the elevator if you use the accessible toilet on the first floor. You might need to use it if the one on the first floor is busy and you have to use the one on the 6th floor.
Equipped with wheelchair accessible toilets
Not fully accessible, but wheelchair accessible.
Meets conditions for wheelchair accessible toilets such as entering, moving from the wheelchair to the toilet, handrails, positions of switches, and certainly equipped with the means of emergency contact.
The accessible toilet is only for wheelchair users.
Comes with four handrails, which is really helpful for wheelchair users; you can lean your back on one.
The same buttons to open and close the door are on both the inside and outside the toilet.
The button inside should be more inside; if you get out of the room before it completely closes after you press the close button, the door will close with no-one inside and the sign ‘occupied’ will light on the outside.
Accepts guide dogs.
