Leave a suitcase in Tokyo for 3 weeks 2007/10/5 01:45
Tokyo 23-ku
Hi everybody !

My boyfriend and me are actually in Japan for a 2 months trip. We are staying for 1 month in Tokyo and on the 19th of October, we will travel in Japan for 3 weeks. Then, we will stay a few days more in Tokyo before going back to France. We wanted to know if it is possible to leave our heavy suitcase (full of shopping stuff ^^) in some place in Tokyo (like a coin locker or anything else) and travel "light" with only our backpacks. We thank you very much for your help and advices

You can store your luggage at coin lockers in larger stations or at the Narita Airport. Howeever, it will be very expensive for 3 weeks.

You can use self-storage type of places for around JPY7500 per month, but will need a depsit. For 3 weeks, this option appears to be cheaper.

It's possble that if you stay for a month in the same hotel in Tokyo, travel for 3 weeks and return to the same hotel, that you could leave your suitcases there. It may be best to contact the hotel before you go and aks them.

I agree with Sandy. Coin lockers at major stations can be used only for 3 days. Even "Luggage Storage Office (Tenimotsu Azukarisho)" can keep your luggage only for 15 days.

Leave a suitcase in Tokyo for 3 weeks 2007/10/6 00:32
Thank you all for your advices ! I agree on the fact that leaving our suitcase at the hotel for 3 weeks would be the best choice but we are actually renting an apartment... We should make a reservation in an hotel for the last few days of our trip and ask if it is possible to store our luggage for 3 weeks. Or maybe we could use the self storage as TravelToJapan suggested to us...
