2. deodorant bring as much as you can for its a great gift to any foreigners you may meet, for some reason Japan does not sell real pit stick anywhere.
3. Passport and international drivers licence.
If you need any information about Japan check out my site and when you come to Japan dont forget shoes!
Colinmac, did you even read the question? He wasn't talking what is needed to LIVE in Japan, just to get through customs.
