    Hi Hazuki,

    There are no restrictions on what wheelchairs you bring in terms of laws or anything.

    However, using a larger electric wheelchairs may mean you have difficulty getting JapanTaxi, smaller stores, etc.

    The popular foreign brands are Invacare, Quickie and Permobile. All are sold in Japan as well.

    Mobile scooters (ハンドル型電動車椅子) are not allowed on some trains because they have trouble turning quickly.

    Hope that helps!
