    bicycle box JAPAN

    Hi,

    Im going to Tokyo from the USA in about 19 days, and i will be in Tokyo the whole time except for 1 day. I'm taking my bicycle over there, and that 1 day i will be traveling to Fukushima. i dont really want to take my bike all apart and put it back in the box just to take it. I was wondering if anyone knows where i can store my bike at for a whole day or maybe a little longer?

    I've seen those underground bicycle storage towers which I'm highly considering doing, i just don't know how to get one of those RFID cards. I was hoping i would just pay for one when i got there, but i want to make sure ill be able to park it for the time ill be away.

    AND... this is what im most concerned about, I have not a clue where i should store my bike box? i hope someone can help. its much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    James

    I know this is an old post, but I have almost exactly the same issue. I will be transiting thru Osaka and want to store my cardboard bike box while touring. I plan to spend my first and last night in Japan in Osaka, while touring for three weeks in between. I emailed the first 12 hotels listed on an Orbitz search of Osaka that had rooms for <$200, and asked them if they'd store the box between my first and last night at their hotel. Within one day, 7 had responded they would be happy to do so, and suggested I respond to their email with another email containing my reservation number so they'd have a record of my request linked to my reservation number. I expect it will work as promised.
