    Hi, I have a similar question, but this time regarding the Shinkansen/bullit train from Osaka to Hiroshima (and later on vice versa). I will be traveling in my powered wheelchair and bring a non-powered wheelchair. This last wheelchair would need to travel as luggage (it is foldable, but I have no idea if it would fit the stowage compartment overhead or if they would allow bringing it), or as a second wheelchair place and then one of my helps will sit in it.

    What are your ideas and experiences on that?

    In addition, I bring a big hardcase samsonite to fit the fragile parts of my powered wheelchair in. Is there any way to store this at the Kansai airport for approx two weeks? Or should I take it with me on the Shinkansen? I read somewhere that there is extra room behind the last chair in a row, would that hold the (folded) wheelchair and hardcase samsonite?
