Oversized baggage

Don’t worry about oversized baggage. You can bring extra-large baggage onto Shinkansen bullet trains.

  • ・the total dimensions must be 160 cm to 250 cm


    When bringing baggage that is larger than a certain size onto the Tokaido, Sanyo and Kyushu Shinkansen (routes: Tokyo – Nagoya – Kyoto – Shin-Osaka – Hiroshima – Hakata – Kagoshima-Chuo) or onto the Nishi Kyushu Shinkansen line (Takeo-Onsen – Nagasaki), passengers are required to make an advance reservation for both their seat and baggage area.
