    As Justin mentioned, Japan is aging rapidly and you will often see seniors sitting on their walkers.

    If it is a small stool it should be no issue, but a camping chair with a drink holder might be too much 😜

    Two things you might want to consider:

    Getting a “help mark” which is a little red lanyard with a heart and a cross on it that indicates you have an invisible disability. You can get them at subway stations I believe.

    You could also rent a wheelchair. Or borrow one at the place you are visiting as most tourist destinations have wheelchairs available these days and you could likely ask to use it while waiting.
