Oversize Luggage

Recommended Posts


I need to travel from Kyoto to Tokyo by train but have several oversized luggage pieces with me.


1 x Rimowe Trunk - 60 lbs - 80cm L x 37cm D x 41cm W
2 x Pelican Cases - approx 25 lbs each - 56cm L x 23cm D x 36 cm W
1 x Tenda Case - 60 lbs - 27cm L x 27cm D x 99 cm W
We don't mind paying for them, but I cannot seem to find out that we can take them or that we can pay for them to accompany.  We are travelling from Canada and the trip to Tokyo will be on October 30 at night.
I would like to pre-book and pre-pay if possible.  If it is not possible, what is another option?

Thanks so much,
Mandy Kane

At the moment there is no reservation service for oversized luggage. There will be special luggage area on shinkansen trains with reservations starting from May 2020.

You can find more information in this article: https://matcha-jp.com/en/7887?type=news

We suggest using a luggage delivery service:


Your hotel or a tourist information counter can assist you with sending your luggage. From Kyoto to Tokyo luggage is usually delivered on the next day.
