    Hi again,

    Sorry, I forgot to answer about luggage. On the Shinkansen there is really only an overhead shelf for carry-on sized luggage, and there really isn’t a lot of space in between carriages either. You would be safer  sending by courier. But it could be very pricey. Here is the service:

    As for the bed, I don’t have any real experience other than rearranging within the room itself. There may have been a practical reason: hotels, like everything else in Japan, have very little space and they may not have room to store a bed as most don’t have large storage areas. 

    So, I would ask again directly and at least find out why. The organizers may have asked in a too indirect way like “moving the bed would be difficult, wouldn’t it?” Etc.. Asking will not hurt and may help the hotel realize that it is something that some customers need

    Which hotel is it?
