    Hello Jason,

    As you said there are stores with narrow isles, though you chair may fit (even in many popular Akihabara stores my chair fit enough to see the bulk of the goods), you should be able to leave your chair nearby with little concern (no joke, Japan is very safe) but I would recommend informing store staff and maybe leaving it by the registry if possible. Chances are the staff will gladly help you and keep an eye on it. You could possibly print out a note asking in Japanese if you can temporarily leave it while shopping if you want to streamline the situation. Nevertheless, if you still feel unsafe about leaving it then by all means lock it.

    As for your medication, it definitely depends on the medicine involved. If you haven’t already, check out our sister site Accessible Japan, especially the notes on medication here:

    It should get you started,but if you have further specific questions let us know and we will try to find an answer.
