Hamamatsu Station is relatively old in Tokyo station terms having opened in 1909. Throughout the station there are motifs of the Manneken Pis, the famous Brussels landmark. On one of the platforms is a fully operating miniature statue of Manneken Pis, which like the original changes his clothing throughout the year.

Hello,

Do you know how big the lockers are and how much it cost to use a locker at Hamamatsucho Station? I just want to drop off my luggage, then use the Oedo line to go straight to Tsukiji market upon arrival at Haneda Airport.

Thanks,

Dang Nguyen.

I believe there are different sizes. 600 yen is the most expensive taking 100 or 500 yen coins. Unless you have a super huge suitcase it should fit. The problem is if there are any vacant. You might have to wait a bit.
