The Magical Japanese Art of Luggage Forwarding

The Magical Japanese Art of Luggage Forwarding

An ode to takkyu-bin. In Japan, apparently (and: obviously!), you never need to carry your luggage to whatever’s your next destination. You can simply have it forwarded for you, for a small fee. I know this exists in Switzerland as well, sort of, but it’s expensive and not very flexible. In Japan, no hotel or guest house too small to offer it
