The Nagano train station has recently installed some large lockers so you can now store your skis and snowboard bags securely whilst you go and explore the city center before heading out to Hakuba or one of the many other ski resorts. The lockers are located on the upper concourse just opposite and left as you come out of the shinkansen (bullet train) ticket check. There are also some smaller lockers at the bottom of the stairs on the street level of the west (Zenkoji) exit. The largest ones cost 600 yen for the day. 6 x 100 yen coins.
Coin Locker Updates (April 2015 onward)
Nagano’s locker situation has changed since the station had its full face lift. You can now find coin lockers in two areas of the station, one on the second and another on the first floor. They’re all decorated with Nagano-inspired characters like Arukuma and anthropomorphic vegetables, so they’re hard to miss. Read below for more information!
