Kyoto Packing List Tips by vic&michael
Kyoto What to Pack: 12 reviews and 8 photos
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Dress for the seasons.
In winter, bring those duck-down jackets and scarfs, and gloves. It gets cold!!
In summer, bring singlet tops and jeans/shorts/cargos/skirts.
In Spring & Autumn, bring what you'd wear in summer but also a cardigan or light jacket/jearsey.
Always bring a small fold-up umbrella in your bag. It pours with rain with no warning some days!
Or else, you'll just find yourself buying one from the convienence stores anyway on a rainy day.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Ahhh! In summertime, the mosquitos bite and bite!
Bring mosquito repellent so that you won't be itchy for the whole trip! My friend from Korea visited us, and on her first night here, got bitten 10 times! And once on her eyelid! wow, now those are some hungry mosquitos!
