Don’t waste space on toiletries.

7 days ago

As the Japanese pride themselves on cleanliness and excellent quality products, I found we wasted space on bringing toiletries. Everywhere we stayed, we were provided with everything we needed and more. Furthermore there are so many “drug stores” with goods that are far more superior to anything I’ve ever used in my travels around Europe and North America and home.

Can I ask you if you stayed in hotels only or they provide such "services" even in budget backpackers hostels?

Both hotels and hostels provided what we needed. The minimum we received was shampoo, soap, conditioner and toothbrushes with toothpaste on a daily basis at a hostel.
