You reckon It's rush? We were hoping to go gotemba outlet after the themepark close, But Can't seems to find any transportation over, Or did I Miss out anything.
There is a bus service. Please reconfirm when you reach the themepark.

Not sure what time the outlet closes but you have to check.

If they open your luggage at custom, they will confiscate it.

Yes apparently it all started with the mad cow disease scare last time, but it is probably too protect their own beef market.

All meat products must come with a cert attached to it to prove it has passed inspection (from AVA). I don't think any bak kwa company in SG has that service set up yet.

I'm arriving at haneda sat 6.30pm and leaving on following Saturday 10.45am flight.

Thinking of taking keikyu line to and from airport. This means need to transfer on the yamanote line Saturday night and morning respectively.

Would it be difficult with luggage? Am afraid it'll be too crowded.

Why not hammamtsucho. Monorail same platform as JR train. Easy to move. Scenic view to the airport too

dun need Kansai area pass or JR pass if just going Kyoto and Osaka
can just get bus pass for Kyoto, and maybe 1-day Osaka pass. otherwise just use single trip tickets or stored value card

hmm...in my opinion, if it's too crowded, can take the next train. the train frequency is quite short for that line and doesn't need to wait long for the next train

Thanks for the advice. I found this. Monorail and Yamanote discount ticket. JPY500 to any station along the Yamanote line.

you can visit apple jp store to find out their prices. E.g. Ipad 2 16GB is at Yen 58,104(tax included)

My wife said their japan limited edition bags are cheaper. Not sure how true but she bought Burberry Blue label, prada, agnes.b etc.
