Packing List

Here comes the big one… the monster list… the intimidator… the PACKING LIST. I’ve been to Japan before, so I hope I know what I’m doing… But this list is definitely going to be a work in progress until the night I leave.


  • Omiyage (macadamia chocolates)
  • Umbrella (I know you can buy them in Japan, but it’s harder to find a retractable one)


  • Deodorant (4 sticks)
  • Toothpaste (5 tubes)
  • Toothbrush (2, just as starters… I don’t mind Japanese toothbrushes)
  • Floss (however many I can stick in the crevices of my bag)
  • (((Hair styling products)))
  • Chapstick (4 tubes, plus what’s in my carry-on)
  • Lotion/facewash (for the plane + week’s supply)
  • Sunscreen
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Shaving stuff (1 razor)
  • Hand towel


  • Swimsuit
  • Undergarments
  • Camisoles (1 white, 1 black)
  • Shoes (1 pair of flats, 2 boots)

Food (please ignore this because I know it’s dumb but I can’t help it!)

  • Turkey Spam (I can’t find turkey in Japan and I’m from Hawaii… I need Spam! lol)


  • Ethernet cord (x2)
  • Router
  • All my cords/chargers (packed neatly in a pouch)

What do you think?
