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.

or this

I went the shop see, material like quite thin, never try before how cold is <10deg celsius for a long time outside.



need gloves?
Early Spring can be very cold in the early morning when wind blows, there were once i went out in the morning was sub deg.

Usually I just wear one tshirt as base and long sleeve shirt as second and wind breaker jacket and bottom just jeans nia. If hand cold, I just put my hands into jeans pocket nia. As long no big winds, can tahan for me the above setup

Last night sub few deg, can tahan just wearing fleece shirt and jeans cause no big wind.

Hi, I have only one full day in Kyoto. What are the recommended places to go? Is it possible to go Nara (to see deer) and bamboo place in Kyoto in a day?
one day can cover the arashiyama bamboo grove and nara park. But must start early.

Gotemba Line run by JR Central that's why not covered by JR Eat Pass

possible. But you wont be "on the ground" much of the time, as in you will be moving from one transport mode to another.

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.
So 15 degree need to wear how many layer?
I'm going in March, should be around same temp?

Depends on the individual. I can stand 15 degrees with a single layer of long-sleeve clothing with light jacket if it's windy. To be safe, 2-3 layers should be fine. If you have a thick jacket, 2 layers is ok as long as it can block out the wind.

I went to Tokyo in early March before and it was still below 10 degree. Anyway u can always buy the winter clothes there if not enough to keep u warm. The winter clothes are cheaper there.

Depends on your own tolerance. For me, 20deg I just wear t shirt plus casual jacket/blazer. 15deg no wind no rain, long sleeve tee plus casual jacket/blazer. Lower than that then only will consider heattech, scarf, etc.

Most of them like shoppers or passers-by will still wear their winter clothing rather than doing change parade. Only those staffs who worked indoor wear normally.

I don't see ppl carrying the winter jacket around the moment they step into indoor. Even on subway train too. Unless your ride is long ride.
