Whether you are visiting Japan for work or for leisure, make sure you pack carefully when travelling around if you wish to avoid the inconveniences that most foreigners experience.

Pack lightly when travelling around as you may not get space for bulky luggage in trains in Japan, especially during the peak hours. Overhead space in trains is not large enough and can not accommodate big suitcases. You can keep your luggage in front of you, but it would be quite uncomfortable to do so.

If you are using city buses in Japan, it would be better to carry small sized bags which you can conveniently place on your lap or in front of you. If you wish to avoid the hassle and inconvenience of finding storage space at trains and buses, make use of private taxis. They can easily carry your large suitcases in their trunks.

You can make use of storage counters and coin lockers for storing your luggage. Luggage storage counters are available at the airports and charge depending on the number and size of the items that you store with them. Coin lockers are available at the train stations and outside some of the tourist attractions.

To learn about Japanese business etiquettes, culture, and tradition, look for a qualified and experienced Japanese interpreter. He would help you understand the ins and outs of the Japanese culture and would ensure that you are able to impress your Japanese business colleagues with your behaviour and mannerisms.
