I need to make hotel reservations soon for our April trip to Japan (yay!). We're staying in Shinagawa for its combination of plentiful and cheap hotel rooms plus great transportation. However, we think we can squeeze enough money out of our budget to finish the trip with three nights at the Mira Costa.
However, the part about getting the luggage from our hotel in Shinagawa befuddles me. It's a pretty long haul, so I suspect the cost of a taxi will be very high. Am I correct or is this doable?
We'll have rail passes, so theoretically, we could just take our luggage on the train and transfer at Tokyo Station after truddling down all those escalators to the seventh basement or wherever they keep the Keio line, but I've never SEEN anyone with luggage on the trains. Is this just something that's not done?
Also, a couple of the hotels in Shinagawa seem to be some kind of official Disney partner hotels and offer a shuttle service to the Disney Resort. Think there's any chance they'll be willing to transport us AND our luggage?
