When planning a trip to Japan, one important aspect to consider is how to handle your luggage. The last thing you want is to be burdened with heavy bags whilst navigating unfamiliar airports, train stations, and hotels. Fortunately, door-to-door delivery services are available to help with this. Two reliable companies that offer this service are Yamato's Kuroneko and Sagawa. Both companies have English websites and offer online tracking of your luggage, so you can easily keep tabs on your bags throughout their journey.
