As I know, you don't need to go to T1 and just wait in T2 to take your next flight to Japan.

I have a connection flight at Beijing Capital Airport. I land in T1 and fly out of T2.
If its a connection flight, do I have to lick up my luggage? Or do I just go to T2 and they transfer my luggage for me?

Transit Time at Beijing Capital Airport
I arrive at T1 at 1:45pm on a Sunday afternoon on a Hainan Airline flight and have a 2hr5min layover. For my onward journey I have to catch a 3:50pm Hainan Airline flight from T2. I'm on a non-Chinese passport. I suppose I'll have to go through baggage claim, walk/shuttle to T2, baggage check-in, security, immigration and walk to gate. Will I have enough time to cover these? How long will each of the above take and is there anything I missed that would take-up my time during the transfer?

For international to international transfer, the time is enough. Don't worry.
But if for international to domestic transfer, I am afraid that the time is too tight. Generally speaking, you need to have 2.5 to 3 hours to make this transfer.

Thanks for your response!

Don't worry. You can take some rest at the Hourly Lounge at T1, PEK. The exact location is public space in Arrival Lounge at 3nd Floor of T1. You can easily find the place according to the detailed English signs at the airport.
