    If you can transfer and stow your wheelchair you are likely ok, but if you need to sit in the wheelchair area and stay in your wheelchair you need to confirm since it is reserved seating and the conductor checks tickets. Tokyo to Osaka has trains every few minutes so you often can get something without much of a wait. Lines to other areas have more time between them though.

    Also, you can always sit in the deck area between cars – but it is noisier for sure!
