    Here is a mobility item members might be interested in.

    NOAA MOBILE-X (made by NOAA Co.,Ltd.)

    No driver license is required to drive on streets in Japan and no worry to get on Shinkansen or trains, buses and aircrafts. The body is made of aluminum alloy used for aircraft, so it’s durable and light weight (20 Kg / 44 lbs). Additionally, it’s foldable and can be stored in a large size suitcase (ex: H: 70cm W: 47cm D: 26cm). Amazing!

    Operation is simple! Just hold the lever on the handle, and
    release a lever to slow down. Max speed is 6 km/h, and max speed is adjustable
    by the setting dial. Reverse speed is 2
    km/h. Rechargeable buttery drives 12 km.

    NOAA MOBILE-X is certified by Japanese authorities
    as well as CE (European Union).

    Unfortunately, no English site is available, but you can check some movies in Japanese on Youtube.

    I’m happy to provide you with any additional information members request.

    That looks like a great product!

    For getting on the shinkansen etc, there is a certification/sticker to show compliance with size/turn radius requirements for scooters. Since this can go on the shinkansen, is there a sticker or label attached?

      Yes, this item gets three stars certification/sticker to show compliance with size/turn radius requirements for scooters. This means this item can get onboard on Shinkansen and other trains.

      Others are as;

      ISO certificate

      Japan Traffic Management Technology Association Certificate: 交K20-3

      TAIS (Technical Aids Information System) code: 00971-000006

      I don’t have pictures showing these certificates/labels on the product, but the manufacturer says it has all above.
