Well sorry if I sounded like a gate crasher, but hor, instead of worrying and debating if there will be snow in Tokyo, why don't you guys proceed to Hokkaido instead?

You shall have plenty of high quality powder snow and cold weather and 2nd to none scenery over there. And things will be slightly cheaper than Tokyo despite high season.
ai, too late liao. everything bought, tix and lodging. so now just waiting for the flight date(8 Dec). Anyway, never like cold weather, i mean biting cold, toes frozen cold. My favorite touring month is Nov. This time round, I cannot make it for Nov due to schedule constraints.

just siam the wind and you should be fine.

5th station?

it depends on the conditions, if the road is open then yes. you will more or less know only on the day itself. Especially during non-climbing season.

I often joke that Mt Fuji is very shy, a bit of thing only dun want to let you beo her liao.

do go and get Mt Fuji water... (yeah I know water right? have a taste then tell me )
