Please pack and handle your baggage on your own.
Carry-on baggage is limited to what can be stored under your own supervision in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you.
Depending on the aircraft type and the size of the storage space, baggage may not be accepted to be carried on board even if it meets the stipulated size and weight.

When traveling on Japanese domestic sectors using an international flight ticket, the rules for international flights will apply.
Please note that smaller aircraft (with less than 100 seats) have limited storage space, and baggage exceeding the stipulated size may not be carried on board.

Please check the number of seats and stipulated size for Japan domestic flights by referring to the pages below.

Please store baggage in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you to ensure a safe and pleasant journey. Leaving baggage in locations where it might hinder an emergency evacuation such as in the aisle or near the emergency exits is prohibited by law. Passengers seated at locations where no seat is placed in front of them, such as in front of a cabin monitor or behind a cabin separating wall are required to keep the area around their feet free of any baggage at all times.

When storing your baggage in the overhead compartment, please make sure everything is stored neatly by ensuring that no baggage may fall out when the compartment is opened. Baggage that is not secured properly may fall out in the event of strong impact and may injure you or other passengers.

You may need to purchase a ticket for an additional seat if you wish to carry bulky baggage on board such as a painting or musical instrument which does not fit in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you. Please contact ANA by telephone for details.

If your baggage is not stored properly, a cabin attendant will speak to you. Please follow their instructions for your own safety.

Restrictions are imposed on carry-on baggage by certain countries or regions.

The use of fire on board aircraft is restricted.

Please note that there are restrictions on the following types of baggage.

Carry Bags
Due to limited storage space in the cabin, carry bags may not be accepted for carry-on even if they meet the stipulated size.

Large Tripods
Large tripods with a length exceeding 60 cm when folded are not permitted to be carried on board.
