Has anyone here used a hyperbaric chamber in Japan? If so can you tell me a location and approximate price per use?
Thanks in advance,

Portable hyperbaric chamber is for sale. Originally purchased for $10,000 USD and carried over to Japan. Selling for Y400,000. In excellent condition. Contact admin[at]tokyowithkids.com for details if interested.

I made a big mistake. The selling price is Y750,000. Not Y400,0000. I confused it with another item. It is located in Tokyo near Iidabashi station on the JR Chuo/Sobu line (center of town).
The original purchase price was listed as $11,000 USD but the company gave the mother a discount of $1000 because it was a direct sale (not through a retailer). However there was tax and also shipping to Japan from the USA. It has been used less than 50 hours and is in new-like condition. It has been re-packaged into the original boxes.
It is fully portable; however, the compressor is heavy. My daughter accompanied the young boy in the chamber on about 4 (or 5) occasions. It holds a small child and an adult (of average weight) without too much trouble. However, a small pre-teen or teenager of course fits into the chamber with a small child even better.
In order to keep a small child entertained it is also a good idea to maybe have a portable DVD player in the chamber during a session.
