3. Train Station Coin Lockers
The most popular choice for foreign tourists with heavy bags, the lockers found at major Japanese train stations can be a godsend but be careful because there are actually two types of lockers: Ones that take physical coins and ones that only accept IC cards. The latter is operated from an LCD screen in the middle of the lockers and usually have an English menu option.
