You already got a lot of good answers to this same question on the US Board. Have you gone back to read them?

If it's electronics, it will state on the plug if it has a voltage converter. USA is 110V. Although you can plug your Japanese electronics and it will charge, I find it messes with the circuitry, and it will either die quickly or take forever to charge. This is based on my experience of Japanese cell phone and laptop in USA. I have not used things such as hairdryer or straightener.

There are inexpensive electric blankets available at most pharmacys and big box stores in the USA. If you like your blanket, its better to spare it the travel.
