Default What kind of backpack?

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently planning a trip with a friend to Japan in 2014. What we're going to see is not entirely decided, but we want to visit many places in 3 weeks time.

I have read somewhere that travelling with a suitcase isn't the best thing to do and they advise to use a backpack. Can you give me some advise?

I don't see why you can't use a suitcase. As long as you have somewhere to leave it overnight/during the day there should be no problem. Realistically if you want a backpack to replace a suitcase the difference between them will be that you can wear one on your back - still a nuisance to have to carry around all the time and you'll still need somewhere to put it. So if and only if you need to walk (or cycle) long distances with your belongings (and this is unlikely to be necessary unless you're out in the middle of nowhere), you should get a backpack.

That was my first thought too. I dn't remember where I have read it but it had something to do with travelling. Not enough space in the train or something like that.

Thank you for your advice r-18 and Mussolini!
