I’m really interested in it! When I was in Japan, I spent ours waiting in person at Midori Madoguchis to book for wheelchair seating and sometimes I had to come back the next day to finish the reservation, to pick up the tickets or whatever…
Unfortunately, if it’s with an app, it will most probably not work with foreign phones as apps are sometimes only available in a specific country’s App Store (the one that your phone is registered). At least, I had that problem when trying to download apps to book seats at certain restaurants (Kura Sushi), to buy other tickets, etc.
As Josh points out, it’d be nice to know if it works with the Japan Rail Pass for tourists. I may get one next time : )
