Luggage lockers at Kagoshima Chuo train station?

Hi,

Please can someone tell me whether there are luggage lockers in Kagoshima Chuo station? I assume so, as most stations have them. If there are, does anybody how big they are (ish) and around about how many?

I'd just like to work out the likelihood that I will have to trail my luggage around with me all day when I get there.

Thanks.

Yes there are. As with virtually all major Japan stations they come in various sizes small, medium and large. Pretty good availability any time I have been there, but large lockers are hard to find sometimes.

If staying at a hotel, you could deposit your luggage there, or use luggage forwarding.

There are lockers and most definitely have ones that would fit a carry-on but usually these are the ones that got taken first. 2 other options:

1. at the adjacent AMU department store, there are plenty of lockers in the main building and Premium Hall on various floors, see http://www.amu-kagoshima.com/facilities/, or

2. some tourist information centers will take your luggage for a token fee (it varies, 300-500 yen), but that is during their opening hours (8 to 8 for the one at Kagoshima Chuo station, right across from the train entrance or the JR office)

The nearest coin lockers from the platform is Ekimachi 1-chome's, just on your right hand side when you exit the ticket gate. Coin lockers are also in Amu Plaza, as mentioned above. There's a manned storage service in Tenmonkan. I've seen other storage service near Dolphin Port, too.
