Do you want to know the 'Hack' for buying many souvenirs in Japan?

Continuing our previous BLOG, here's the method to buy many souvenirs in Japan. Last time, we suggested utilizing our clothing rental service so you can come to Japan with an empty suitcase and fill it up with souvenirs before returning home. However, carrying an empty suitcase during your travel is a hassle.

Now, here's the astonishing "Secret Technique" everyone doesn't know before. After arriving at the airport in Japan, you can deliver your suitcase via courier to your last hotel before departure. Yamato Transport allows delivery up to 7 days in advance, the postal service (Yu-Pack) allows up to 10 days, and Sagawa Express allows for a whopping 30 days. With the average stay of foreign visitors in Japan at 8.8 nights (as of 2019), this technique is feasible for most travelers. You can pack your suitcase full of souvenirs on the last day of the trip by using this "Secret Technique."

The beauty of this method is the utilization of courier services "right after arriving at the airport." As the first airport you arrive at is an international airport, it's arguably the place in Japan where foreign languages are most understood. Hence, there's minimal risk of communication issues when using the courier service. Additionally, by doing this immediately upon arrival, you won't have to lug around an empty suitcase throughout your travels within Japan.

Sounds great, right? With this "secret technique," you can indulge in shopping to your heart's content in Japan. Why not give it a try on your next trip to Japan?
