heat tech is ok as a base layer for temperature around 0. lower than that, u better get a proper long john. but it is all dependent on ur own tolerance to cold also lah

buy winter boots, is it cheaper to buy at ABC mart no tax free, or at departmental store (eg. daimaru) with tax free?
Tax free supposedly)sealed up & to be used when out of Japan.

from the description in japan-guide, I think only consumable goods need to be sealed up

Japan Shopping Guide: How to Shop
Tax free shopping is available to foreign tourists only at a small number of licensed stores (typically major electronics and department stores[/URL] in large cities) when making purchases of over 10,000 yen at a given store on one calendar day. In case of consumable goods, such as foods, medicines and cosmetics, the consumption tax is waived for purchases of over 5000 yen, but the package of such goods must be kept unbroken until after departure from Japan.

Can someone help me figure this out?

I want to do a Hakone one day trip.

From Shinjuku to Gotemba Premium Outlet to Hakone Ropeway to Sightseeing Boat to Hakone Shrine then back to Shinjuku.

Is it feasible and what is the first Odakyu train to Hakone?

Timetable: Shinjuku - Gotemba | Odakyu Limited Express "Romancecar" | Odakyu Electric Railway

Fist train will reach Gotemba by 8.21am. Likely by 9am should be at the premium outlet. You would be 1 hrs ahead of their opening time. But the view is great maybe u can walk walk see see first.
