It’s been awhile since I posted a packing list, the last being for at trip to Okinawa.

This time, it’s a short four day, three night trip to beautiful Karuizawa. This is my third time to this beautiful mountain town. I actually cycled all the way from Tokyo the first time I visited, so I definitely have some fond memories.

So, as you would see, this isn’t a minimalist packing list. I filled my 32l Nayo Almighty to the brim and packed whatever I thought I need. I was going to rent a car and leave my bag in it, so weight wasn’t really a concern to me.

Without further ado, here is the obligatory all items laid out photo.

I will try to list up items in order but as you can see, I only wear black so which is which often gets confusing even for me. I’ll also be reflecting on the usage of certain items.

This used to be an ad, but noone likes ads. So, I decided to remove them completely from my site. I spend hours and hours researching, testing and writing about each product, so it would mean the world to me if you lend me your support by becoming a Patreon. Every dollar helps.


Since I was taking videos most of the trip, I only used the Sling Pocket once, so I probably didn’t need to bring it along in the first place.



I ended up not wearing the Futureworks at all.

I made a video of the sights I experienced around Karuizawa if you are interested.
