    • Luggage/Himeji

      Himeji May 24, 2015 at 3:16 PM

      Hey, on the way from Osaka to Hiroshima I'm planning to spend the day at Himeji.
      I'm wondering what to do with luggage though.
      I've read the station has a few lockers but I was wondering about a backup plan if they are all full, other than forwarding luggage.
      Any ideas? So far my brother only has "leaving cases around so they get taken into lost property and then collecting them later". Inventive but risky.
      Thank you!

    • Suitcase storage

      Kobe Sep 2, 2012 at 11:34 AM

      I am flying to Osaka in March for a one month visit to Japan. I am leaving by ship from Kobe and would like to store a suitcase with dress clothes in the Osaka/Kobe region that I can retrieve for my trip home. Does the port passenger terminal offer long term baggage storage? Or train station beyond a few days? I don't really care where, I just don't want to haul around a large unneeded suitcase for one month.

      Thank you
