    Hello! Our family is currently visiting Tokyo with our daughter Eden who uses a Permobil M300 power wheelchair. Her battery charger broke last night and her chair will not charge. Are you able to provide any assistance or recommendations regarding who we can contact for help?

    Oh no!

    Here is a list of Permobil dealers in Japan.

    Are you at a hotel? If so, you can ask the person at the front desk to call for you. I recommend the place called Abilities

    Hello!
    Saito Kobo shop near Sumida area maybe could help you.
    They build their own wheelchair but also provide assistance for several models.

    I googled “power wheelchair repair Tokyo” and found this: http://www.marudai-fukushi.com/ Not sure if they speak English, but you can try.

    Thank you all for your helpful suggestions! My husband was able to solve the problem by visiting the Permobil company in Koto City. He just showed up and some wonderful people were able to help us. For backup I was able to order a manual wheelchair to be delivered to our hotel tomorrow through Amazon for only $160 usd. We were so worried, but very thankful for a quick solution!!
