Canal city is a big place and has coin locker in B1. Next to escalator (near information center). But it is not cheap. I pay 500yen for my big backpack.

Nothing especially exciting about this mall. It is just like any other big shopping mall with all the different branded shops. That said, it is huge, so you can almost find anything you needed with a wide choice of restaurants, cafe, shops and entertainment.
