Japan has a very sophisticated and advanced train system. You can get anywhere to anywhere in the country very conveniently with great precision and affordable price. However, because the mass population rides the train, often taking a big luggage could be a hassle.
The solution to this? A “Hands-free-travel” plan for foreign travelers provided by Yamato Transport Co.,LTD ( aka “blackcat”).
This service will help travelers send one luggage to your next location. It will take about 1-2 days for the transport. Just tell them your current address, and the address of your next destination. Pay an average of 1000-2000yen, and the luggage will be waiting for you at your next stop.
