Possible to advise alternative route from Tokyo sunroute shinjuku back to HND.
Our flight timing will be midnight hence not appropriate to take airport limo bus from sunroute at 5+pm.

I do not know enough to list down all.
But I do know that you can consider taking the Yamanote from Shinjuku to Hamatsucho. This is follow by switching to the Tokyo monorail.

I will be staying in Shinjuku too. If my departure time does not clash with the peak period of the train, I will take this route.

Fast but Expensive way (3190 yen)
1) Take Narita Express to Tokyo station
2) Take JR Keio Line to Hacchobori station then walk

Cheap way (1133 yen)
1) Take bus to Tokyo station
2) Take JR Keio Line to Hacchobori station then walk
Is there any website I can use to caculate the cost of the trip?

Hi. I bought some lego from Bic Camera and they were bought in as tax free price.

I had managed to pack all my lego unopened and sealed into my luggage and will checked in later than hand carry.

The cashier stapled the receipt on my passport. Any problems on clearing the Japanese custom as I don't carry in to show the items?

No problem. In the first place the customs likely won't even have anybody at the counter. In the off chance that there's someone there, just show passport and the customs guy will just pull off the receipt that's stapled on your passport and won't even ask to look at the items.

Hi!

would like to ask if anyone has any experience reserving bus rides in Japan?

I'm looking to reserve the "north liner" from obihiro to sounkyo onsen, but can't seem to find any websites to reserve.

Thanks!

Departed at kansai yesterday and saw some went to the custom counter to let the officer removed off the stapled receipt from the passport. Settled less than 5 sec. This was done before departing immigration counter.

Exactly what u mentioned!

Is the Spring cold or not? I check usually about 5-15deg celsius.

Need to wear how many layers? Normal uniqlo jacket with 1 layer clothing inside can tahan? (not the heat tech)

this picture guy wear 3 layers, dunno what's the inside layer, maybe is some heat tech hack lol.

I just returned from Japan. The temp is about 8 to 10 degree in day time and at 5 degree at night. Probably it is even colder while we are sleeping.

5 degree vs 15 degree is lot of difference. For me I don't think the 1st top piece can actually keep me warm at 5 degree.

I wear 3 layers. Base Layer is heat tech, followed by a long sleeves and outer is the light weight uniqio down jacket. especially with chill wind blowing, I wear a beanie. It made lot of difference when your head and ears are covered.
