Luggage Transport Services in Japan: do we need them?

Jump to last reply

Trying to figure out the whole concept of luggage transport services in Japan and trying to figure out how (and if) we should utilize them.

Based on our itinerary (4 days Tokyo, 1 day Hakone, 4 days Kyoto, 1 day Hiroshima, 1 day Miyajima, 1 day Osaka) it would seem to be that the only real candidates for usage would be:

*send luggage from Tokyo to Kyoto
*send luggage from Hiroshima to Osaka)

How do you all normally do this? Who's the best company to use? What is the process for actually doing this...and what's the average cost?

We plan to bring two full suitcases for our trip, but sounds like it may make sense to also bring a large duffel and pack "mini trip" clothes in there.

I don't want to lug a lot of large suitcases around train stations, but we also do want to bring a variety of clothes on this trip since we're going in November and will need warm/cool clothes as well as fancy/casual clothes.

Curious to get the experts' thoughts...
