We will be visiting Tokyo at the end of March / start of April and one of our group of 4 uses a manual wheelchair. We’d all love to spend an evening hiring a booth in a karaoke place, and we were wondering if anyone could recommend an accessible one?

Sure, I’m sure we can find something. Most places are willing to rearrange furniture in the room to accommodate wheelchair users, so it is just a matter of whether or not the building itself is accessible or not.
It is likely best to go to one near your hotel, what is the nearest station to your hotel?January 9, 2020 at 5:44 pm #6179CedarParticipant
We are staying near the Monzennakacho station.January 9, 2020 at 10:50 pm #6182Accessible JapanKeymaster
This karaoke, Monzennakacho Fudomae Big Echo, is accessible: https://goo.gl/maps/CSDGYSNAm6Uytu6y9
(Note: there is another Big Echo Karaoke by the station that is not accessible.)
There is an elevator at the entrance:
I called and the staff said it is fine, but suggested it is best to book in advance (nothing drastic, just a few hours before) so they can move furniture for you.

By the way, this one doesn’t list itself as being accessible, but is near your hotel. There are others that are classified by the company that as wheelchair friendly as well, but would mean going to another area. Let me know if that is of interest and I can add them.January 10, 2020 at 3:42 am #6184CedarParticipant
Thank you!! That’s really helpful, and thank you for ringing them too 😀
I’ll be back soon with more questions, but in the mean time I’ll read that Maid Cafe article.
