At Yokohama port on arrival there was a desk where you could send your luggage direct to your hotel. I am guessing it could be same day as not a long distance and you will be leaving the ship early. We used this service to send our luggage to Okayama hotel and went with hand lugage only up to Hakone area for a few days.Hi Tara Kane
The cost was about $15 aud per suitcase and worth every cent. This service is very widely used throughout Japan by the locals and is very reliable. Either send luggage from your hotel front desk or any 7-11, family mart, lawsons store. Very little storage space for luggage on the shinkansen also. My daughter spent a year in Japan as an exchange student and when on school camp the kids sent their dirty washing home to mum using this service. You will see the vans driving all around Japan with a black cat motif on them.
Thanks for the info. Yes I know about the suitcase courier service but it's a Sunday so not sue if it will be open. I know other sites around Yokohama also offer this service but it's the difficulty of finding them.
I am interested in sharing a taxi eith others to tokyo if possible.
