A List of 24hr Post Offices in Japan

Most of the small post offices in Japan close early (around 6pm) on weekdays and do not open on weekends and holidays. However, there are post offices that are open 24/7. Those are the big post offices that are usually near the major train stations and they have a counter called “Yu-Yu Window(ゆうゆう窓口 yu yu madoguchi)”. You can buy stamps, send packages, and collect packages you sent to the post office (*Explained below) at the Yu-Yu Window anytime.

It's worthy to know that Japan Post allows you to receive parcels at any post office in Japan. The service is known as "kyoku dome"(局留め, literally means stop at the post office). For example, when you buy something online but don't know where you will be staying, you can have the package sent to a post office in the area you will be around and can pick it up once it is delivered to the post office. The package will be returned to the sender if it is not collected within 10 days. Remember that you need to show your ID to collect your package, so the recipient's name should be exactly the same as on your ID and not a nickname

Here is a list of the main post offices in Japan where a “Yu-Yu Window(ゆうゆう窓口)” is available 24 hours. You can click the post office's name for more Information (Japanese Only).
