Japan What to Pack: 63 reviews and 37 photos
Luggage and bags:
Consequently, there isn't usually a wide space to store large luggage in trains, and the coin lockers aren't large enough to hold them either.
I recommend keeping your luggage small when you travel around Japan. You might want to bring several small bags so that you don't have to carry a large suitcase
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Since it's a Japanese custom to take off your shoes indoors, you might have to take off your shoes often in Japan.
I recommend bringing a pair of shoes that you can slip off and on easily. Make sure to bring, and wear, a nice pair of socks or pantyhose to avoid any embarrassment when you take off your shoes
Toiletries and Medical Supplies:
...... many times on the street you will see people handing out little tissue package with advertisiment..dont pass it up...it will come in handy later..:)
Photo Equipment: The electricity in Japan is 100 volts, and there are two cycles (50/60).
In Tokyo and areas northeast of Tokyo, the electricity is 50 cycles. In the southwest Japan, it's 60 cycles. Osaka, Kyoto, and Nagoya are in the southwest side
If you need to bring any appliances from your country, make sure to bring a converter or plug.
American appliances can be used in Japan without a converter although they will have less power
If your appliances are three-pronged, you need a plug since Japanese appliances are two-pronged.
You can buy converters and plugs in the airports or travel equipment stores in Japan. But since it could be a hassle for you to find a store that sells the converters, it's better to purchase them in your own country. It shouldn't take much space in your luggage.
