Pack Wisely

You will be carrying your own baggage, often for long distances, up and down stairs. For travelling within Japan, a backpack or moderate size suitcase works well. A small bag that fits on overhead racks is indispensable. Also, you will probably have more things with you on the return trip with souvenir, so leave extra room in your bags.

If you plan to have your luggage delivered from the airport where you arrive (Narita, Nagoya, Kansai) to KIT, you need to pack items for an overnight stay and the next day in a separate carry-on bag that you will bring with you. Your shipped luggage will usually arrive the next day.
