    Hi All:

    Manual wheelchair user here. I have just returned from Japan and was on several Shinkansen. My wheelchair folds up and it was very easy to put it behind the last seat in the car.

    The one thing I will say is that I had not realized you really should reserve that space so we didn’t think to mention it when we were getting our train tickets. In the end, we lucked out and the space was not being used anyway, but probably best to mention it when you book your tickets at the counter/JR pass travel center.
