Since I will only be in Japan for a little over two weeks I won’t need as many things but I think this will generalise over all exchanges.
I am not packing a change of clothes for each day since in Japan they wash their clothes daily or every few days. Also I am packing for expected and unexpected weather and activities.
-tank tops (2)
-short sleeve shirts (3)
-long sleeve shirts (1)
-jean shorts (2)
-exercise shorts (2)
-night shirt (2)
-light rain jacket
So I will be packing things for the plane. Also for in my hotel room and free time with my host family. I have also learned some hand games and other simple activities to teach my host family.

I am bringing many gifts for my host family. But I am also bringing some for friends I might meet at school.
-an elephant tea pot (grandmother)
-a pen and a key chain of the local baseball team (sister)
-shirts that say stuff relating to USA
-other little nik-naks from my state
I also had toiletries but those vary per person
