    There are new rules being introduced about traveling with large suitcases on the shinkansen that will incur extra costs.

    Shinkansen will require reservations for large suitcases, charge penalty fees for those without

    While this news might look bad, it actually might be good for travelers with disabilities.  Up until now, there has been no real room for larger suitcases and no luggage carriage, but this new systems to be introducing a specified luggage area.  Hopefully this will make it easier – or should I say possible! – to transport portable hoists etc

    If you try this out, let us know how the process goes.
