The website for the boat service mentions that the boats are older than the accessibility laws in Japan and aren’t all wheelchair accessible (http://setonaikaikisen.co.jp/news/archives/2873 – Japanese only).
They provide a PDF showing adaptations they have made to the boats. They look to all have accessible boarding ramps, but the ramp for the smallest high speed boat is only 65cm wide – which might be a bit tight.
Here is the PDF (http://www.setonaikaikisen.co.jp/pdffolder/shipinformation_for_wheelchair.pdf). It is only in Japanese but has plenty of pictures.
Enjoy your trip and please follow up so we know the latest information!
