Sasebo What to Pack

  • Bring an Umbrella

    An umbrella is required . It rains in Sasebo alot Sept thru May. Where I am from in the US, if your a man and you are carrying an Umbrella, they may think "your a little light in the loafers". Here is Sasebo, if it's raining and you don't have an Umbrella, "your an idiot"!

  • Japanese people are Small!

    Doesn't matter! Warning!!! I usually pack light and buy what I need to get threw the trip, but people here are really small and it is hard to impossible to find clothing and shoes that fit! Adapters for your electronics because they use a different voltage than in the US.
