Planning for Japan

Need to put this down before I forget.

Planning to carry 3 bags with me to Japan. One is my Herbalife gym bag, which will be big enough for me to stuff in my toothbrush and toiletries. And an extra change of clothes. This bag will also contain my laptop, charger and DS. Might add my normal laptop bag into the bag; it’s small enough so all I need to do is carry my laptop bag when out and about in Kyoto.

Then there’s one roll-on luggage bag for clothes. And another for souvenirs and the random fandom stuff I know I will buy. Planning to split the clothes at first for two bags so I’m not carrying an empty bag. I may throw toiletries into the small fandom bag.

Thoughts? Doable? Bad idea? I can’t check in 3 luggage?

    How many days will you be travelling?

      7.5 days. We’re landing at night in Japan. :D

    as far as i know, you can check in many bags as long as under the weight limit (20kg i think?)

      We have an allowance of 15kg going. I’m planning to upgrade to 20kg or 25kg coming back. :D

    Have you packed an adaptor? Japan uses 2-pin, make sure you get a global adaptor. Leave out the DS – you shouldn’t have time for it. I didn’t touch mine the whole time. When I reached Tokyo in the morning they didn’t have a room yet, so I had to lug stuff around, not good. Either distribute the weight between two bags or make the carryon light so that you can leave the suitcase at the hotel. The chances of theft are low, I left my notebook at the B&B in a notebook sleeve the whooole day and was intact with everything inside (and we’re talking paper doors here!).

      Will be putting an extra adapter into my bag since you mentioned it, though my colleague does have it. I’m planning to bring the DS for the trip on the plane.

      As for the check in, we’re landing at night and they’ve been told to expect us. The same with the hostel in Kyoto.
