Story & Recommendation
No hassle needed for carrying your luggage!
The JR Carry Service is a facility located in the basement (B1 floor) of the JR central gate, which is very easy to access; you can use the escalators located in the center of Kyoto Station. They provide luggage storage as well as a carry service, where luggage can be shipped to your hotel on the same day, if checked in by 2pm. Start off your sight-seeing without carrying your luggage when you arrive to Kyoto!
Check out the services available here! You can leave or send your luggage to your hotel or anywhere in Japan. Many visitors are seen using the service available here even early in the morning when they open at 8am. You can take your luggage here right after arriving in Kyoto and have it sent to your hotel, then start visiting places in Kyoto without any heavy baggage. Or you could even have it shipped to your next destination, whether that’s the airport or a hotel in Tokyo.
With the Carry Service, luggage can be stored in the facility for up to 15 days. It’s a wonderful service if you are planning to go out of the city for a couple days and come back. The price is very reasonable: ￥420 yen per luggage for 1-4 days or ￥840 yen for 5-15 day.

Be hands-free and check-in your luggage to be sent to your hotel! Carrying your luggage around won’t be much fun, especially when you want to go sight-seeing.

If the luggage is accepted at the counter between 8am-2pm, it will be delivered to your hotel by 5pm. *There may be delay in the scheduled time due to traffic.
