I am going to Tokyo from 5-10th November.

I guess a normal wool material Uniqlo jacket will do? Not gonna haul my Nordic wear there - Seems like overkill. Hahaha..

By the are there any nice hotels hovering about 100SGD to intro? Some nice convinient ones. Figure out that I wont be in them for much of the time. Dont want to spend big on hotels stay.

Thanks.
toyoko-inns are very decent & are around that price in Tokyo

i think its the Wind. When in Europe i was faced with rains n wind. Nv been to Japan. i think if its sunny n all i should be fine even in normal clothes during the day time.

I guess the furry type of Uniqlo with heat tech should do fine.

During peak periods, hotel rates are quite high making it expensive if staying in Kyoto.

During non peak periods, cheaper than Tokyo.

Understand that only SQ has direct flight to Kansai airport. Which is too expensive for air ticket. Are there other alternatives? As only plan to be in Kyoto. When are the peak/non peak periods? Solo accomodation

Scoot is direct but not non-stop. Direct is same plane but had stopover. So safer in the sense that cannot misconnect... stopover is in Kaoshiung Taiwan.

Peak normally Sakura period April. Koyo Period Mid Nov to early Dec
Japan domestic peak then Golden Week last week of April + New Year

SQ is the only direct. 6hrs + to reach KIX. That flight is still okay if you book early.
I think most premium flight route to Japan is the one landing at Haneda Tokyo, that one always expensive

Has anyone returned from Hakone/Lake Kawguchiko/FujiQ Highland by highway bus recently?

I tried making online reservations at www.highwaybus.com and seems there is no more free reservation.

Looks like I can only reserve seats at the Odakyu counter in Shinjuku when I buy the 3 day Hakone-Fuji Pass in early Nov.

Wondering if seats will be a problem coming back from FujiQ Highland bus stop.
