Tokyo Airport Luggage Storage
From a short stopover or a longer trip, storing your bags at the airport is an easy solution for luggage storage in Tokyo. Bags can be stored upon arrival, meaning you don’t have to carry them with you into the city.
Haneda Airport – Temporary Baggage Storage
In both Terminals of Haneda Airport Tokyo, luggage can be stored for up to two weeks. The bag should not measure more than 300 cm in height, width, and depth, and should weigh less than 30 kg. The storage facility can be found at Terminal 1 in B1F and at Terminal 2 in B1F.

These prices are per item, per day. It is also worth noting that not all sizes and shapes can be accommodated. The service is available from 06:00-22:30 every day.

Tokyo Station Luggage Storage
Storing bags or suitcases in Tokyo’s train stations is a convenient option for luggage storage. However, while lockers can be found in almost every train station throughout the city, the supply is not always able to meet the high demand. If you’re lucky enough to find a vacant one, make sure to take note of which locker you used to find it again with ease! It can even be helpful to take a photo of your locker to retrace your steps to find it.
Station storage lockers are available in small, medium, and large, and are priced at 300 yen, 500 yen, and 800 yen respectively. These are self-storage lockers that are either coin-operated or use an electronic ticket system. Most luggage lockers offer English instruction details for payment and use. It is important to pay attention to the maximum amount of use time (which can vary depending on the lockers) and note that if your bags exceed the maximum, staff will remove your items.
To find the lockers, follow the signs indicating coin lockers. This often includes an icon symbol for a coin locker. Alternatively, signs can be written in English or Japanese (コインロッカー; Koin Rokkaa).
