Luggage storage options from Shinjuku->Kamakura->Kyoto.

Jump to last reply

I'm planning on traveling from Shinjuku to Kamakura, and after spending a few hours there, head on to Kyoto. I will be using a JR pass (green seat), and traveling with my family (including a 7-year old). We will have all our luggage with us since we are leaving Tokyo and will be spending the next few days in Kyoto. We will have two of these 29" bags: http://www.amazon.com/Travelers-Choice-Amsterdam-Expandable-Rolling/dp/B003U8EX02/ref=pd_sbs_a_4.

My original plan was to leave the luggage with the hotel and come back to Shinjuku, but I am hearing that this might not be a good idea.

1. Are there luggage storage counters on the trip to Kamakura where I could keep my luggage and collect it on the way to Kyoto?
2. If there are lockers, will my bags fit in those lockers?
3. Are there multiple options in case the storage areas/lockers are full?
4. Should I consider using "Takuhaibin"? Who do I contact, and can I expect same day delivery from Tokyo to Kyoto?

Thanks,
D
