Where to Find Coin Lockers & Luggage Storage in Shibuya
Luggage storage in Shibuya is essential for any traveler. Here’s what you should know about storing your luggage at one of Tokyo’s busiest train stations.
Luggage Storage in Shibuya Station
Tokyo is one city where walking is inevitable, and there’s nothing worse than baggage dragging you down. One thing I love about Japan is how brilliantly efficient the city is when it comes to preserving the quality of life. For this reason, you’ll find a plethora of luggage storage options and coin lockers around the city.
Shibuya Station is the fourth busiest train station in Tokyo, and for that reason, you’ll find quite a bit of luggage storage options. Read my article about Shibuya Station to also get a broad familiarity with it before you arrive.
Locations in Shibuya Station: Look outside the JR Station between Hachiko and Western Exit.
However, snagging a locker can easily feel like playing a game of musical chairs. It’s all about timing.

As you can see, a lot of the free-standing lockers in the station are full. They end up going to a popular spot called the Shibuya Chikamichi Information. This is a popular spot in the station, but they only keep the bags from 10:00 AM- 6:00 PM for 600 YEN each. Learn more here if this is fitting for you.
TIP: It’s most useful to have a PASMO or Suica card to easily pay for your coin lockers. Read my in-depth article on the Suica vs Pasmo Tokyo Subway Passes.

The Shibuya 109 is the most iconic department store in Shibuya. It’s known for its all-female levels of high-intense gyaru fashion. But, one thing it’s not known for is its hidden luggage storage downstairs. The 109 is directly across from the Hachiko Mae exit and Shibuya Crossing.
The Mark City Coin Lockers
The Mark City is an extension of Tokyo Station and inside you can also find luggage storage, mostly on the 4th floor. Consult their floor guide for directions and follow the Mark City Exit.

Here, you can also have your luggage held for up to 24 hours. It’s also located close the Shibuya Hikarie and the station exit. It’s a popular option but their website is less impressive and user-friendly. Read more about their policies here.
