Before you start your journey to Japan, it is important to understand about the things you should pack. This is because many beginner travelers underestimate themselves when it comes to packing their bags with a list of unwanted things. These are some of the items you should include in your luggage.
- Valid Visa and Passport – It is absolutely crucial to have a passport valid for at least 6 months. When it comes to visa, it depends on from where you are traveling. Japan allows tourists to enter the country with visa on arrival. However, make sure you are updated whether you qualify for visa on arrival. If not, it isn’t that hard to get a tourist visa.
- Japanese Rail Pass – Now this isn’t necessary however, if you wish to travel by a train, then it is a must to carry. Japanese rail pass is a great way to travel between cities especially on bullet trains and also a great way to save money.
- International Driving License – Another not so mandatory item to bring. However, if you wish to visit the awesome streets of Tokyo on a Go-Kart, then yes. This is a very popular activity you can enjoy if you have an international driving license.
- Hotel Reservation – You need to reserve hotel in advance. However, a printed copy is not necessary. Keep in mind hotels get booked really quick.
