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.
So even indoors will feel cold?

it really depends. some malls and train are quite well heated.
i remember going into tokyo tower in late autumn wearing a jacket. after about half hour, i was sweating and my whole face was red. encountered quite a few trains where there is heating under the seats

Wanna check regarding hyperdia..

I tried searching for journey from odawara to Narita T1. I saw there is a fare 3,020 plus seat fee 3550. Is the seat fee referring to the reservation for seats?

Taking shinkansen from odawara to shinagawa.. Then NEX to Narita.

I tried editing but seems like NEX must reserve seats?

seat fee is the additional charge for limited express and shinkansen. there is a seat fee regardless whether it is reserved or unreserved seat, with unreserved seat having a lower seat fee
NEX only have reserved seats iirc

NEX only have reserved seat? So if I want to take NEX from Narita to Tokyo, must I reserved seat online first prior to arrival? If so where to reserved ah?

No need to do so before you arrive in Narita. Just buy from the JR counter there after arrival. Very very rarely do they sell out (never seen before). There is also Keisei Skyliner if your destination is Ueno/nippori area.

Thanks! In this case shld I still get the Hakone free pass? I am actually taking the limousine bus to Shinjuku when I arrive. 1 way is 3,100yen but if I buy round trip it is 4,500 yen. Then get the Hakone free pass 5,140yen and spend a night in Hakone. Next day head to Odawara to see plum blossoms then back to airport. My flight is 8:50pm. Luggage will be sent to Narita using courier before I leave Tokyo.

I was initially thinking of returning back to Shinjuku to take the bus. But this would take 4hrs to reach airport. Now I'm considering taking train directly to Narita from Odawara but seems like a lot more expensive?

lilrex21 just to add another option, if price is a concern then u can take normal JR Tokaido Line (non Shinkansen) from Odawara. Train is frequent and much cheaper but of course a lot longer duration (around 1hr25min to Tokyo). Still not really cheap though, hyperdia says 5k+ for whole journey.

btw have you gone plum festival before? just one note, don't take the 'shuttle bus' from Odawara to the orchards - it's actually a normal bus which costs 500++++ whereas the train only costs 200.

it is faster to take NEX. at 4000yen for the round trip ticket, it is still cheaper than the limo bus.

u can use hakone pass to cover the trip back to Shinjuku, then take NEX to narita airport

Hi what about the power socket in Tokyo? Do we need to buy a adaptor for our 3 pin plug?
