Luggage Storage at Train Station

Hi, I'll be traveling from Tokyo to Kyushu for about 10 days before returning to Tokyo. Does Tokyo train station has locker big enough to keep my 25kg full size luggage? Are there a lots of such big size locker around Tokyo station and how much does it cost per locker per day?

where are you staying in Tokyo? Generally it can be a good idea to have your hotel look after your luggage while you go on a trip. Much easier than lugging your bag to the station finding a locker and "paying" for it. If your hotel will do this for free (usually) :)

Thanks Seki. I'll not check in hotel until I am returning to Tokyo at later date. So, I am not sure if the hotel is willing to keep for me.

you might be surprised. Check with your hotel I've found most good hotels will hold your luggage before or after your stay usually for up to a week without charge.

Hi there,

Hotels will indeed hold your luggage most of the time. Failing that, there are many many many coinlockers at Tokyo station and every station in Japan has it's fair share of them. 25k does not say much, meassurements are more important but there are full suitcase size lockers available, usually at 900yen/24h with a maximum of 48 or sometimes 72hours.

Additionally there's a cloakroom service available at Tokyo station that will hold your luggage for a maximum of 10 days. There's not a lot of information available at it on-line. You can find it near the Northside Marunochi entrance close by the JR Travel Service Center.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
