Extra baggage allowance

I'm looking to go to Japan next year but I am confused about the amount of free baggage allowance given by Lufthansa.

On their website it says that for an economy passenger one piece of checked baggage is allowed. But to/from Japan two pieces of checked baggage is allowed.

As I live in Manchester, UK, am I allowed to check in two pieces of luggage going from Manchester to Tokyo Narita via Frankfurt/Munich?

Yes - the normal allowance for economy is 1 bag x 23kg but the one of the exceptions is flights to/from Japan where it is 2 bags x 23kg.

I assume you will need these flights to be on a single ticket and you are simply connecting via Frankfurt/Munich rather than stopping over in either city.
