Don has some good answers here, I’ll just add a couple things that may help too.
If you haven’t already, I recommend checking out Accessible Japan, specifically the train transportation section here: https://www.accessible-japan.com/wheelchair-accessible-trains-and-subways-in-japan/
The trains, metro, subway, or commuter are all almost universally accessible. I recently spent 90-day in Yokohama and often used trains to/from Shinjuku, other than busy, it was nice and easy thanks to Station Attendants who help with the process. City Buses may be another option for the place where trains don’t quite reach (but don’t count on shuttles or sightseeing buses to be accessible). As for the Taxi information Don mentioned, this forum post may help: https://www.tabifolk.com/groups/japan/forum/topic/travel-in-wheelchair/
I hope that helps,
