      Mobility scooters are not common in Japan and have been banned in the past on certain trains.  In fact there are still many restrictions in place. (

      The biggest issues is often that since not all of the rules are enforced and scooters are all different, the experiences of users can range from “no problem at all” to “had a horrible time”.

      We wanted a place for people to share those experiences.

      Please share your experiences of using a mobility scooter in Japan!
