From Haneda Airport to Shinjuku.
Is it better to take the Airport Limousine Bus
or Keikyu Line to Shinagawa, transfer to JR Yamanote Line?

If take the Limousine Bus on Monday morning will there be traffic jam?

yes in a hotel
but my hotel not in the list of hotels for the limo bus leh
See which hotel is closest to yours. Then take a cab down. Alternatively, can get off at Shinjuku station and take a cab down, be it taking the train or the bus. Won’t be too expensive.

Jialat, I booked my express 4 pass for Universal Studios Osaka, and when I got the ticket, the timing for Harry Potter is 4pm. Ask KLook they say cannot change the timing one, as it's as-is. If I reach Universal Studios earlier can I still queue to enter the Harry Potter attraction?
When my family was there in Dec 2014, everyone sprints to the Harry Potter area once the main gates open... took the rides multiple times...

Can also take monorail and change to jr yamanote.

Imho limousine bus is good if it's your hotel is along the routes or near one of their stops.
Can be troublesome to manage luggage in jr yamanote trains especially peak hours. Limousine bus saves you from this.

price is just $10 more, so not really an issue.

besides needing to change train if i take Keisei, is there any other cons to taking keisei?
Keisei is good if u are staying in ueno or asakusa.
If staying in shinjuku or near stations along yamanote line, NEX will be better.

I think they are too young to play arcade games and some of the rides at Joypolis

Asobono looks ok though.

Am heading to Osaka in late Feb and here's my planned itinerary, hoping to hear additional comments if I can further improve/revise it

Day 1 (Sat) >> Arrival in Osaka
Day 2 (Sun) >> Umeda & Dotonburi - Free & EZ
Day 3 (Mon) >> Kyoto Part 1 - Fushima Inari, Kiyomizudera, Higashiyama District
Day 4 (Tue) >> Todaji Temple, Nara Deer Park, Kasuga Taisha Shrine
Day 5 (Wed) >> Kyoto Part 2 - Kinkakuji, Arashiyama
Day 6 (Thur) >> Empty for now, maybe Onsen
Day 7 (Fri) >> Cup Noodle Museum, Minoo Park & Waterfall
Day 8 (Sat) >> Kuromon Ichiban Market - Free & EZ

why split kyoto into 2 separate days with Nara in between?

I got 1 empty day but not sure if I wanna dropby Kobe

Coming from KIX to Inari station, would it worthwhile to get a "ICOCA & HARUKA" round trip at 5200Yen, However i will depart from Osaka for the 2nd trip back to KIX, Does the card allow me to do return from Osaka station.

Japan ski shops normally rent ski jacket and pants, so if you don't want to buy your own you can rent. If you wanna buy but don't want to spend a lot, can buy at decathlon (but the designs a bit boring lah).

Even if you decide to rent, I recommend buying at least your own ski gloves.

Helmet, YMMV but I personally don't think it's necessary. But some sort of head/ears cover (for warmth) is a must. Goggles also are really nice to have so you don't get snow in your eyes, I think Japan ski shops also rent goggles.

Note that if you go Europe to ski, rental shops there do NOT rent clothes, you have to buy your own.

Hi guys, can i check what hotels are you guys staying in Osaka and Kyoto?

I will be heading to Osaka/kyoto with my wife and child from 5th - 10th Dec. Any hotel recommendations? that is near train stations/subways? I will probably squeeze in Universal studios and Nara in between.
