Thanks for your suggestion, I think I would stay a day at Toyama to complete the route.
Maybe i will just go to Takayama and stay there at day 2 and go to Toyama on day 3, go for the Alpine route at day 4 then back to Kyoto on Day 5. Is it better to stay at Shirakawago or Takayama?

will be interesting to stay in the straw huts in shirakawago

Are you going to the fifth station? Not hiking up to the top right? Here is the temperature graph

http://www.fujisanpo.com/data/weather_forecast.html#5th-temp

Today's weather at the 5th station

http://weathernews.jp/pinpoint/cgi/...lat=35.3907411&lon=138.7355869&pref=49&num=19

Yup, according to my tour itinerary we will be going to the 5th station.
How to see the 5th station temperature from the 1st link uh? Is the right side column that one? So for October is around 1-8.9 degree?

Anyone today just went down to HIS to buy the disney ticket.
The price for it now is $83, last monday I check with them it cost $79.
Should have went down to buy on that day itself, can save 4 dollar per ticket xD

But for the Junior and Child ticket the price no change leh.
Anyway at first I see from website it already put $83, so I'm prepared to pay $83. After email inquiry then realise its $79, after that go down become $83 again haha.

Now I'm waiting for Yen to be back at least 86, then I gonna book for my Fuji tour. At first want book last week but too busy forget, now the rate is 83 liao. For 4 pax is quite alot xD

Yup that is right. 1 degree is for night time. This of course does not include wind chill. Wind at that altitude will bring everything down below zero.

I would think thermals/long john, sweater and then a coat. But it also depends on your tolerance of cold. And most importantly don't forget a cover for the head and gloves for the hands

Oh.. Okay.
Head and glove most important uh? I still thought can don bring sia.
Thanks for your recommendation! Will prepare this for my Mt Fuji trip then!

By the way, any recommendation for itinerary after going Tsukiji market?
At first my plan is Ginza, then follow by Tokyo station area. But after more research found that Ginza like mostly all high end product, don feel like going there just see see only leh.
If I go cup noodle museum, is it along the way? Or totally not convenient?

usually it is the hands, feet and ears that feel the coldest. so yah, better to bring gloves and something to cover ur head/ears.

Uh.. Okay.
Then better bring uh.

Hmm.. If go Odaiba any attraction or places which is must visit?
I understand that the night view there is quite nice right?
Is there any places for me to go after Tsukiji, then maybe end my trip at Odaiba.
Cause since Tsukiji I will go there around 830am, then maybe around 11 or 12 will leave there. If I want to stay for night view at Odaiba that would be very long hour over there xD

Will be going with my parents and gf. Saw that there is a Toyato showroom there. Might be interesting for me and my dad but for my mum and gf don know if they will like anot leh haha.

I visit Oedo Onsen quite often. It has a huge bath, both indoors and outdoors. It has a foot soak, salt therapy and fish spa. There is a huge "canteen" selling varieties of food, and the settings are somewhat the japanese pasar malam. One could easily stay there for quite some time for first timer.

it operates thru the night though it closes at some part of the morning for cleaning up. the bath i'm talking about is the onsen bath, where u have to don your birthday suit.

foot soak is free while the fish spa and the salt thingy requires separate payment.

You can go there after 6, however it will be crowded if you dun mind.
