What to Bring On Your Road Trip

So you’re going on a road trip, how exciting! You may be wondering, “What do I need to bring?”  Well if that is the case, we are here to help!

Here are five items you should pack before you hit the road.

1. Water

Life on the road can be unpredictable and having water on hand will be extremely important. It will probably be beneficial to get gallon water containers and use them to both hydrate and even freshen up.

2. Portable Charger

Having a portable charger in your vehicle will be incredibly helpful while on the road. Not only will this allow you to continuously have access to GPS, but it will also be important to have a way to contact someone in the case of an emergency. 

3. Wifi hotspot

Using a GPS system is invaluable while exploring any new area, especially a new country. However, to do this, having Wi-fi will be imparative. With the assistance of Wi-Fi at all times, you will always be connected to the internet and can ask for assistance at all times.

4. Snacks

Having good snacks can make or break a road trip. Packing foods that are nonperishable are great for long car rides. Go grab some trail mix and hit the road!  

5. Clothes for all types of weather 

Especially in Japan, the weather can be unpredictable, so visitors should be prepared for all types of weather. Some days it is cold and rainy, while the next could be hot and humid. Layering is a excellent way to adjust to this issue, especially if you are trying to pack light.
