    Yes, I believe so for the Shinkansen.  I have ridden in the deck before and know another wheelchair user who only rides in the deck.  The only thing to check is that if there are multiple wheelchair users it might be different.  You should also contact JR to be sure.

    Also, if you are going from Tokyo to Kyoto or Osaka, there are trains every 10 minutes, so, it is highly unlikely that all of them would be full! Even if you have to go separately, you will only arrive a few minutes apart.

    The safest option is to go to a Midori no Madoguchi 2 days before you plan to ride the train.  They are in most big JR stations.
