Japan trip planning

With exactly two weeks to go until I leave, I’m starting to actually do some planning ;)

I just got home from REI, buying some super-fabric travel clothes that weigh nothing and dry instantly. My goal is to make the whole trip with only one bag. And it looks like I’ll be able to achieve it – I put everything I was taking into the backpack, and it all fit, albeit just barely.

On the plus side, this was a test of packing everything – I’ll pretty much always be wearing some of the clothes I jammed in, unless I decide to become “the naked tourist,” which isn’t too likely.

Here’s my planning map, with embedded Sakura forecast. I still have Sendai marked as “on the itinerary,” but given how far north it is compared to everything else, I think there’s about a 50/50 chance that I’ll give it a pass.
