    WHAT TO BRING?

    Luggage and bags: Hiroshima is likely to be a destination you will come to from the Kansai area. If this is the case you will probably be travelling by train. As I have said in other Japan related pages, heavy suitcases are not appropriate luggage for train travel in Japan. I would leave such bags and bring a backpack or a smaller, comfortable carry bag. You don't want to get a hernia lugging a huge suitcase up and down train station stairs... believe me!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Hiroshima's climate is much the same as the rest of Japan. Pretty cold in winter and hot and humid in summer. Don't forget rainy season also!! Depending on the time of year you are coming you should bring the kinds of clothes you would wear at home in these climates. For most westerners is is hard to find shoes and some clothing items in normal/large sizes.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I'm sure that pretty much anything you would need in this category can be found in Hiroshima.

    Photo Equipment: Hiroshima is a great place for photographic opportunities so don't forget your camera. If you happen to forget though, Japan has a great range of disposable cameras that you can buy from 900 Yen (24 pics). Use them and develop them in Japan. The photo quality is pretty good.

    Miscellaneous: With all the goodies available in Japan, I'd say bring lots of cash & storage bags! You can buy anything from here :)
