    I’d like to follow this question, because although I am not in a wheelchair, I do have mobility issues due to knee surgery, and my walking is kind of slow. I have seen however, a video on Youtube which shows that people in wheelchairs are often greeted at their stops in train stations by a train attendant who is waiting for the train (Usually the last car) and has a folding ramp which is laid out in front of the exit once the doors open. Obviously, arrangements might have to be made right at the stations. So it makes me see that the trains in Japan, at least in Tokyo, are very friendly when it comes to people with mobility challenges. See short clip:
