Checked baggage for a stopover at NRT

Does anyone have experience about a stopover in NRT? What would happen to the checked baggage? Will they be transfered to the final destination or do I need to claim the baggage and check-in again once I'm back at the airport the day after? All flights will be operated by JAL and the stopover is about 23 hours btw. TIA

It's only considered as a stopover if the connection is > 24 hours. Assuming your connection flight departs from NRT as well, you can either ask them to check through the luggages or pick them up at NRT.

If baggage is tagged through to final destination at your point of travel origin, and you are fine. It will stay at Narita baggage storage for the whole day awaiting your connection.
(They wont forcefully change the destination of the luggage to Narita!)

Thanks for helping. What about > 24 hours?
