How To Say “Is it possible to check in early?” In Japanese?


I will arrive in the early morning in Japan but my accommodation only allows me to check in during the afternoon.

I do not want to drag my luggage everywhere I go before the check-in. I want to try asking the accommodation to allow early check-in.

How do I say “Is it possible to check in early?” in Japanese?


Answer by Professional Japanese Teacher
(1) 早(はや)めにチェックインすることはできますか。
Hayame ni chekkuin surukotowa dekimasu ka.
Is it possible to check in early?

(2) 早(はや)めにチェックインしたいんですが、できますか。
Hayame ni chekkuin shitaindesuga dekimasu ka.
I want to check in early. Is it possible?

Some hotels allow early check-in but it may not be possible for certain accommodations such as Airbnb private homes. Thus, it is best to check with the establishment beforehand.

Both expressions mean the same thing. It is convenient to remember this phrase for your holiday.
