I am not sure what verb I would use for "packing up" (e.g. Packing clothes into a suitcase). Would I use the verb 詰める {つめる}, which is "to stuff into?"


Yes, you would use 詰める. (you can also use variants such as 詰め込む)

You can get a lot of example sentences on Google, too.

This one is pretty useful as well.

  • Can you also use 詰める for in general packing up? (for example, packing up and checking out of a hotel). – Joshuap88 Dec 19 '18 at 0:00
  • @Joshuap88 In that case, 荷造りをする as istrasci mentioned would be better. Ex: 荷造りをしてチェックアウトをする – user32204 Dec 19 '18 at 0:04

[荷造]{に・づく}り specifically means "packing up". The verb would be 荷造り(を)する.
