You are on your last day in Japan. There's a few more things you'd like to see before heading home. But you have a ton of luggage that you need to deal with. You certainly don't want to lug it around while sightseeing. What do you do?
Two Japanese companies have a solution, according to Nikkei Asian Review.
TOKYO -- Two companies in Japan have teamed up to make it easier for foreign tourists to squeeze in a few more activities during their final day in the country.
Airport Transport Service, which operates Airport Limousine buses between Narita Airport and locations in and around Tokyo, and transport company Sagawa Express recently launched same-day luggage delivery to the airport. The new service lets travelers drop off their baggage at selected collection points, saving them the trouble of minding their belongings while making the most of their last day before heading to the airport.
Their "Premium Hands-Free Package" includes a ride to Narita Airport via the Airport Limousine bus as well as same-day luggage delivery. At 3,600 yen ($31.76), it is about 30% cheaper than purchasing the services separately.
Tourists can deposit their luggage at Sagawa collection points located at Tokyo Station, Kaminarimon gate in Asakusa or Tokyo Skytree and later collect it at the airport between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.To read more, go here.
