Japan is the country for shopping, and if you are going for your first time on possibly a trip of a lifetime, then you will be planning to bring back a lot of stuff.

And who can blame you? Japan is full of cool stuff, tax-free shopping and all manner of knick-knacks! However, Japan isn’t exactly suitcase-friendly, it is quite tiny suitcase-friendly but decidedly not large suitcase-friendly.

It is one thing to say that you should pack lightly, arriving in Japan with a light suitcase isn’t exactly a showstopper, but as your trip goes on your suitcase will get heavier and heavier, and at some point you will start considering a second suitcase or another bag, and then life becomes increasingly difficult!

It is unavoidable that you may be lugging around a heavy suitcase or two, especially as you get to the end of your trip, so before you go to Japan it is best to check out our handy tips on what to do with luggage in Japan, that way you are sure to have a successful visit and get some heavy-duty shopping in too!
