My Comments:

Luggage delivery is not necessary but convenient. The rate charge is high in some cases. If you use this service, you should beware about the time. For example, on 1st September you are at Tokyo and would like to send your luggage to Osaka. You would like to receive your luggage at Osaka on 3rd September, in my opinion you must delivery your luggage from Tokyo not later than evening of 1st September. Meanwhile, should have another small luggage for keeping your some clothes and personal belongings. Alternatively, locker at train stations can save the cost.
