Information to transporting your bicycle in Japan.
Japan is a Train-based Society. Public transportation in Japan is highly developed in metropolitan areas and at sightseeing destinations. A large percentage of people travel by train, so it is common for major stations and trains to be crowded throughout the day.
You can take your bike on any train in Japan but it must be packed with a bike bag. Remember that you don't pay extra for taking a bike on the train, even on the Shinkansen super-express train.
If you know your name's hotel, you can send your bike directly there from the arriving airport, using private transport service as Yamato Takkyubin or Sagawa Takkyubin.
