Coin lockers Saga-arashiyama? Or...

I am staying at Myoshin-ji Daishin-in for one night and then going to Kyoto Hana Hotel (near Gion). I want to visit the Arashiyama area when I leave Myoshin-ji since it's close, but what do I do with my bags?

Does the Sagaarashiyama station have medium or large size lockers?

It does, but, their number is limited. See the picture.

As suggested, I think it could be better to go to Kyoto Station to put your luggage then visit Arashiyama, or- take a very early train (before/after morning zazen time?) to put it in before it gets occupied.

Thank you - exactly what I was looking for.

I guess I could go to my hotel after leaving Myoshin-ji and leave my luggage there before we actually check in, and then head back over to Arashiyama.

Hostels might or might not accept luggage before stay- that's the question.

Hana Hotel is not the Hana Hostel, it's an actual hotel. So I think they would hold luggage early right?

Otherwise I will need to go to Kyoto station to store our bags.
