A friend of mine will be travelling to Tokyo for a week or two, and since she has a certain movement disability, she was concerned whether the Tokyo Metro has appropriate accessibility facilities (lifts, escalators, step-free access, accessible ticket machines, gap-less train access). I already found out from the website that priority seats are available.
I wasn't able to find anything about this on the Tokyo Metro website, and Wikipedia isn't much help either.
So, my question consists of three parts:
- Is the Tokyo Metro accessible to disabled persons?
- Are accessibility facilities available at each station?
- What facilities, specifically, are available?
As a bonus, additional information about accessibility in Tokyo will be highly appreciated.
