          Can I leave the luggage at the hotel before checking in? Because I plan to arrive to Kumamoto station at 12.00pm and visit the the castle later. In the evening, I would check in at the hotel at 4 or 5 pm.

          Can't say for sure but I would think so. You may even be able to check in early.
