Packing for a school trip can be tricky, especially if your itinerary includes multiple locations. We’ve compiled a list of essential items plus some extras that will help you make the most out of your trip to Japan with us. We recommend bringing a lightweight suitcase or large backpack as your main bag, plus a smaller day-pack to bring with you on excursions and to use as hand luggage. Remember that your trip may involve carrying your luggage on public transport, so avoid overly cumbersome luggage and don’t over-pack.

Japan has an exceptionally low crime rate and so having your electronic items stolen is very unlikely. However, it’s always worth being cautious and taking good care of any valuables you bring with you. When you pack for your trip, bring any valuable essentials in your hand luggage, rather than the bag you intend to check-in.
