    Hi Betsy,

    Friendly Planet doesn’t sound very friendly!

    First of all, you may want to look at this post about scooters: https://www.tabifolk.com/forums/topic/mobility-scooters/#post-2956

    If it fits those standards, you should be able to use the scooter on the trains etc. Keep in mind though that scooters are fairly uncommon here and therefore some users have had difficulty with train staff who are not accustomed to them.

    As for Uber… Uber only exists as food delivery here and ride hailing is not yet a thing.  So, you will need a taxi.

    Also, I highly suggest you contact Ali Muskett (@ali_muskett on the forum), from Inside Japan Tours.  They offer an accessible tour package and believe they can arrange for transportation as part of that.

    Hope that helps!
