While visiting Tokyo, you can leave your hand luggage or even full-sized bags in a shop or post office that has partnered with Ecbo Cloak (cloak.ecbo.io/en) and pick them up later. Participating shops are in many locations, including at rail stations.

Using Ecbo Cloak's website or phone app, create an account, then choose a location and date and indicate drop-off and pickup times and the number and types of bags to be stored. At the appointed place and time, leave the bag(s) with a clerk. An email, with pictures of your bags, will confirm the drop-off.

The per-day cost is ¥300 (near $2.60) per handbag or small backpack and ¥600 for larger luggage.
