The excitement of arriving in Tokyo can soon be lost as you exit from the arrivals gate with a set of heavy suitcases and an imminent trip across the city during rush hour. Avoid this stress by sending your luggage on to your hotel from the airport, allowing you to explore the city hands-free.

The international airports of Haneda and Narita both have luggage delivery kiosks where you can drop off your bags and suitcases and have them sent on to your place of accommodation. From there you can travel across the city with ease—this is especially helpful if you are traveling with children. Your luggage will generally arrive a day later, so make sure to keep enough clothes with you for the first day. In some cases, same day baggage delivery is an option.

This service is not just limited to the airport. Ask at the front desk of your hotel, as they can often arrange for your bags to be taken to an onward destination, or back to the airport for your return journey. If you are not staying at a hotel, but would still like to make use of a luggage delivery service in Tokyo , you can take your bags to a designated convenience store, and have your baggage delivered to your desired destination.

Even if you are traveling with luggage, most stations have coin lockers available for you to store your bags temporarily. Tokyo’s major stations have walls of lockers of various sizes, however, be aware that they can fill up very quickly. Lockers only accept 100 yen and 500 yen coins, so make sure you have some with you. In more modern stations, you can use your Suica card or Pasmo card to pay for your locker.
