Going to Tokyo in mid Dec. What kind of winter wear is needed? Need thermal wear?

Was thinking one normal layer of t-shirt, one layer of normal jacket, and one layer of down jacket/parka jacket. Should be enough?
this depends on individual. But Uniglo is everywhere, if you think it's too cold, just grab whatever that you may need there. Your current clothing should suffice to tahan you till those shops. Uniglo is cheaper there too anyway.

it's forecasted to be lower than 10 degrees mostly

That ur torso could be feeling okay but your legs may not like it, it depends on how tolerant you are to cold

I am taking my thermals with me

Kansai Thru Pass - 5200 JPY
Per trip within Kyoto - I guess somewhere from 200 JPY to 240 JPY
How many rides you need to take to make it worthwhile?

From Kyoto to Osaka - 500 JPY
From Osaka to Kobe - 400+ JPY
Within Osaka & Kobe transport - 200 JPY
Do you need a Kansai Thru Pass???
guess not, will stick with the stored value card, thanks

Uniqlo's new HEATTECH Extra Warm series is pretty interesting. I went to take a look at them at the shops here in SG and I think this extra warm series are as good as some real thermals from those outdoor manufacturers. Go take a look here or in Japan!

Are your inner shirt thermals or normal shirts?

Hello, going to Japan for the first time from December 29th to January 12th.

Is there any choice of getting a prepaid sim card during my stay in Japan? For example, in Australia, you can get the prepaid optus card to access internet and such. Is there any such choices in japan?

Also, am sticking to Tokyo for the first week, then 2nd week travel to maybe Kyoto, Hiroshima, Osaka or such so I guess I should simply take a 7 day pass or would a 14 day pass be better for travel around Tokyo as well?

Here's a thread on prepaid SIMs:

Use hyperdia to work out your cost and compared it to what JR pass cost.

7-day pass is probably enuf if u are going Osaka, Kyoto and Hiroshima. the pass is mainly to cover the expensive shinkansen ride from Tokyo to Osaka/Kyoto and back, as well as between Osaka/Kyoto and Hiroshima.
u can have 2 days Hiroshima, 2 days Osaka, and 3 days Kyoto.

I recall that FamilyMart sells a wicked parfait but only in summer
