I don't know whether should I buy outerwear from uniqlo,northface or universal traveller..
I like uniqlo white down jacket knee length.. Going to shigragawago too. Is uniqlo down jacket a good choice for shigragawago and Tokyo ? Going during mid Feb till end Feb.
My layered outfit in Hokkaido 0C plus wind chill :
- cotton T and/or uniqlo heat tech (fancy name)
- cotton long sleeve shirt
- wool sweater
- uniqlo down parka

- "snow" pants (with fleece lining inside) water proof & wind proof
- woollen gloves
- ear muffs & neck warmer from Daiso

I find ear muffs worked much better than a beanie
Still yet to find gloves that are not too bulky ... my hands still get cold
What I dont have is water proof footwear for snow

If you have easy access to HDB shops those household good shops are cheaper than Japan Home.

The places I go is around 3 to 10c.. Planning to wear these.
WOMEN Ultra Warm Down Coat *will take off the hood when I'm in tokyo*
Fleece sweater
Normal long sleeve shirt *will skip this when I'm in tokyo*
Long sleeve heattech

I can't really withstand cold.. So I guess the above is enough?

Is long sleeve turtle neck heattech counted as bra or not ah? Lol because I will only wear coat plus heattech plus fleece..

For bottom.
Uniqlo BLOCKTECH Pant
Heattech leggings

sounds ok if it is 3 to 10c.
but maybe double check the temp for shirakawago. coz jan-feb is usually the coldest, and shirakawago shld have quite heavy snowfall.

WOMEN Ultra Warm Down Coat *will take off the hood when I'm in tokyo*
Fleece sweater
Normal long sleeve shirt *with turtleneck* *94% Cotton, 6% Spandex *
Long sleeve heattech *no turtleneck*

Or

WOMEN Ultra Warm Down Coat *will take off the hood when I'm in tokyo*
Fleece sweater

Another suggestion is once you are in Japan to stop by a Daiso or 100Y shop and get an extension cord. They should cost 150-200Y depending on the length. Some hotels don't have a plug near your bedside or at a convenient location, so the extension cord at least allows you to some flexibility.
I usually bring along one of this

i would recommend flannel shirts as they are warmer...
but a nice warm fleece like this
http://www.uniqlo.com/jp/store/goods/172286
for more flexibility, a thin sweater below a medium weight fleece is recommended...
like a thin merino wool sweater
http://www.uniqlo.com/jp/store/goods/173606


turtleneck can save the weight of a scarf or muffler
and wearing a knit hat together with a hood can make a big difference...

shirakawago will be under snow, so make sure you have nice socks and good footwear

Sg uniqlo doesnt sell turtle neck sweater normal ones all out of stock..

I don't think I can wear sweater because with the down jacket plus fleece jacket is really thick and heavy.. my arm area will feel thick liao no space.. How about sleeveless vest?

I feel that the uniqlo fleece are not soft and quite thick.
Are there any good fleece jacket which are not so thick yet provide warm in sg?



I will bring scarf and beanie.

I don't like turtleneck wear as I find it constricting and annoying if you end up indoors where it is warmer or where there is poor ventilation. I rely on very thin scarves that I can tuck into my top to seal off from wind etc, then an added thicker scarf when outdoors and colder.

Sleeveless vests are great - I have a uniqlo down version so it's more compressible and can fit better underneath an outer coat.

Is it this vest? is it thicker than fleece?

http://www.uniqlo.com/sg/store/women...733490020.html

This type of vest should wear on or under fleece jacket ?

have you ever wore a down jacket before? a down jacket is puffy. i would say down jackets are thicker than fleece but lighter.

they have an example on their styling book...
