The purpose of this study is to clarify the present situation about barrier removal on pavements, parks and public transport facilities in Fukuoka city to help disabled people. For that purpose, we investigated every street and park within one kilometer of the JR. Hakata Station. We included an investigation of the JR. Hakata Station itself, the Hakata Subway Station and Fukuoka Bus Center. In the existing locations there are many barriers that hindered the disabled even around the Hakata station which is one of the most crowded places in Kyushu, and there are few streets which are designed from the point of view of walkers. Some of the newly made streets, including crosswalks are designed with no curbs intending a barrier-free street for the disabled. The tendency to be barrier-free are also observed in parks and public transport facilities. There is some hope for the future circumstances of Fukuoka. On the other hand, we also discovered that the causes of city's barriers that hinder the disabled were not only because of a lack of welfare policy but also because of inconsiderate citizens-those who park bicycles in illegal places, etc.. We concluded that changes on our consciousness for the disabled are indispensable to build a barrier-free town besides making changes in welfare policy.
