What Is LUGGAGE-FREE TRAVEL?
Sponsored by JTB Corp., Panasonic Corp. and Yamato Transport Co., Ltd
Have you ever found carrying bulky luggage around on a trip overseas to be a chore? Perhaps the physical effort of carrying your luggage fatigued you, or ended up wasting time you wanted to devote to your trip. Many people have let their luggage dictate their trip, rather than vice versa.
Japan offers the LUGGAGE-FREE TRAVEL service, a solution to all of your luggage needs. Here we interview JTB and Panasonic representatives, who have developed and operate the service.
