    Yes, you can get a help mark at the subway stations in Tokyo (Toei ones for sure, maybe Tokyo Metro too). But it is mostly for people with invisible disabilities, not those in wheelchairs (of course it is OK to get one though!). It is not an official certification / ID etc, and I think anyone can just ask for it on an honor system.

    The main reasoning behind it is if you have an invisible disability, having this tag will encourage others to offer you a seat. Or if you are sitting in the priority seating, it lets other people know that even though you don’t look like you need the priority seats, you actually do need them.
