  1. Hi there, This appears to be the nearest Yamato service center to Shinjuku Station: https://www.e-map.ne.jp/p/yamato01/dtl/132310/?&cond21=1&cond22=1&&his=ar,nm It's about a ten minute walk from the station. Here's a map of the location: https://goo.gl/maps/eYibeasRxU82 Alternatively, you could have your luggage sent directly to your hotel. I hope that helps! Best wishes, Michael
  2. Hello there, The cost of sending baggage from Kyoto Station to a hotel in Kyoto is 1,000 yen per item. You can find more details here: https://handsfree-japan.com/en/service/carry/ To find the baggage room at Kyoto Station check this article (it's towards the end of the article): https://www.kyotostation.com/kyoto-station-lockers-luggage-storage/ I hope that helps. Best wishes, Michael
  3. Hello there, Yes, you are right that the 区 designates a station that is a destination or starting point within the 23 special wards of Tokyo. The 山 designates any station within the Yamanote Line area (東京山手線内). Of course Tokyo Station is also on the Yamanote Line as well as on the Chuo Line. However, there are also Chuo Line stations that are not on the Yamanote Line itself, but because they are within the Yamanote loop they are also included in this area. I hope that helps. Very best wishes, Michael
  4. Hello there, You can actually leave your luggage at the Kyoto Station baggage room for up to 15 days. Here is the information on their official website: http://carry-s.com/wp/?page_id=74 For a guide to finding the baggage room check our article: https://www.kyotostation.com/kyoto-station-lockers-luggage-storage/ I hope that helps! Best wishes, Michael
  5. Yes, that's right (though your diagrams indicate the opposite). The train bound for Osaka/Kyobashi joins the Osaka Loop Line at Tennoji then continues on to Osaka Station before terminating at Kyobashi. The train bound for the Osaka Loop Line joins the Osaka Loop Line at Tennoji and then traverses the entire line in a complete loop, stopping at Osaka and Kyobashi on the way, before returning to its final destination at Tennoji. I hope that helps. Best wishes, Michael
  6. Hello there, The San-In Line is operated by JR West so it is completely covered by the Japan Rail Pass. However, the Super Hakuto runs along the private Chizu Line for part of its journey and so that train is jointly run by JR West and the Chizu Express Company. This means that the Super Hakuto is not completely covered by the Japan Rail Pass and you would have to pay a supplementary fee of 1,300 yen. Best wishes, Michael
  7. Hi there, You can get a direct Rapid Limited Express from Haneda Airport to Asakusa on the Keikyu Line. It costs 660 yen. You do not need to get off or transfer at Sengakuji station. Once you get to Asakusa you can transfer to the subway. I recommend using Hyperdia to look up your train times and routes: http://www.hyperdia.com/en/ I hope that helps! Best wishes, Michael
  8. Hi there, Shin-Osaka Station has plenty of coin lockers but if they aren't big enough for your luggage, you can use the Baggage Room. This is located just outside the 1st floor exit and close by the airport limousine bus stop. The Baggage Room is open from 9.00 to 20.00, so you need to be sure that you can collect your luggage within those hours. The fee for one item of luggage is 420 yen per day. You can leave luggage there for up to 15 days, but after 5 days the daily fee is doubled. Also please be aware that this service is not available for valuable or dangerous items. This is the nu
