luggage lockers at train statons

Do JR stations generally have luggage lockers? Would be nice to stop occasionally at stations to break up long train journeys - but don't want to end up walking around historic sites whilst dragging along my suitcase!

Generally stations do have lockers, however the number of lockers and sizes of lockers vary depending on stations.

All major hub and tourist stations have coin lockers that fit small to large kuggage(300yen to 900yen/d typically). Most smaller stations also have them but the size maybe limited. Bus or subway stations may not.

In general, yes. You might look into having your luggage shipped from one destination to another. Sometimes it's overnight shipping, so you'll need to take a day pack with a change of clothes (etc.), but it might be worth the minimal cost to not have to waste time finding lockers (or potentially not finding one and having to haul your stuff all over the place). I can't speak to current rates; perhaps someone who has done this recently can chime in with that information.

If your bag fits in an airline carry-on then you can usually use the Y300 ones. Those are usually most abundant.
