Foldable Mobile Scooters

My husband has difficulty walking long distances. Are foldable mobile scooters allowed on trains?


Hi there,

While wheel chairs are welcome on the Shinkansen, some restrictions do apply.

I would recommend giving the JR Info line a call and list the dimensions (height, length and so on) and confirm.
