    Hi, according to Google Maps, they are.

    In Google Maps, if you search for a station and then you press “More information”, a wheelchair icon may appear next to the station’s name. If you want more accessibility details, if you scroll down, there’s an extra tab, next to Photos and News, named again “Information” where there are details on whether the entrance is accessible, if there’s an accessible toilet, etc.

    This only works in some countries. In Japan it does and it’s usually quite accurate. Nevertheless, once at the station, you may ask for assistance from a staff member so that they may help you on and off the train with a slope.


    I’ve never actually been to these particular stations, so maybe someone can confirm that they are indeed accessible. If no one can tell, I’d trust Google Maps on this.

    You can also go to the website for the station and in the map area you can see the accessible routes.

    https://www.tokyometro.jp/lang_en/station/tawaramachi/index.html

    Basically you can search “(station name) station map” and you should get to the right place 👍
