Japan is a
Public transportation in Japan is highly developed in
metropolitan areas and at sightseeing destinations.
A large percentage of people travel by train,
so it is common for major stations and trains
to be crowded throughout the day.
This is why we recommend
Walk around stations with ease
Enjoy comfortable travel in both crowded stations and trains! You will also be relieved from hauling luggage when going up and down stairs, or wandering through large stations.
Travel safely while holding your children's hands
When both of your hands are busy carrying luggage, it is easy to lose track of your children. This service allows you to travel through crowded stations without worry by freeing your hands so that you can hold your children's hands.
No more lost luggage
A little carelessness could lead to lost or stolen luggage when traveling through stations you are unaccustomed to. "Hands-Free Travel" ensures a comfortable and safe journey.
Stations in Japan were very crowded so it was very difficult for us to change trains with our children while carrying our luggage as well. We found large coin-operated lockers at train stations, but they were often full. Luckily, we found Yamato's temporary luggage storage service at the train station so we left our luggage with them. We were so surprised to find that Yamato was also able to have our luggage sent to the airport or our hotel! The friendly staff helped us to fill out the waybill and even handed us sightseeing pamphlets. Thanks to the "Hands-Free Travel" service, we were able to enjoy our trip throughout Japan even more.
