    I read from Tokyo Station you have to go through the stairs. Is it possible to go there with a wheelchair?

    Hello,

    I have yet to go there, but I read on a Japanese blog post that it is wheelchair accessible. Here is the picture from Bmaps, a great accessible map app:

    So, it should be fine if you ask for help for directions once nearby.

    There are also accessible toilets.

    You can use Google Translate on this website:

    It is about halfway down on the page.

    Hi again!

    Today I was near Tokyo Station so decided to check out Ramen Street. 

    I just used Google maps and got there no problem. There is even an elevator right above it. So, you should find it easily enough. 

    The only point to make is that getting from one side of Tokyo Station to the other has some stairs (I was warned). So, if you are on the Maru no Uchi side (palace side), you need to get to the Yaesu side (Shinkansen side) and is easiest to go around the station on the ground floor then go to B1. 

    A number of the restaurants look to be accessible but there are long lines at meal times!

    Enjoy!
