I am in tokyo now, it's around 7 to 10 degrees everyday. With strong winds, it's lesser than that, so must prepare all the thick clothes..

I have been to Tokyo when temps was at mid single digit to low 10s..some days with winds...

All I wore was a heat tech inner and a sweater..it really depends on your tolerance for cold..

I find putting heat packs in jacket pockets are more useful than gloves. But the gloves are awesome when holding the super hot drink cans from vending machines.

Speaking of heat packs, you can buy them in bulk dirt cheap from all convenience stores in Tokyo, no need to pack them unless you need them for the trip from airport to accommodations.

Actually killer is wind. If can tahan cold one, just bring proper windbreaker. No matter how thin the windbreaker is, it will be effective. If can't really tahan cold, but not in negative temp, just a fleece jacket and windbreaker on top of it will be fine. For pants, may need heat tech if you feel your legs are cold. All these can go Japan uniqlo buy, no need buy here if you are unsure how well you can tolerate the cold.

For the dryness, cover skin oso no use. Please slather lotion. Plenty of it. All over body. Buy at the cheap pharmacies there. No need bring from SG unless you have your own preferred brand and unsure if you can buy it there.
