I have been traveling around since October and am now in New Zealand. My last stop before heading home is Japan, with the intention of going snowboarding. However, I did not bring all my gear around for the last few months. My friend has a short layover in Narita airport in a few days.
The scenario I'm hoping for is she brings my gear from NY with her and has it left in Narita. I then (perhaps with a copy of the bag tag) pick up the bag in Japan when I arrive.
Is this feasible? (Without her leaving the gate area)
