I actually wanted to get North Face triclimate earlier this year before my trip to Europe. But ended up with a local UK branded hardshell fleece and waterproof shell for half the NF price. I saw too many tourists from a certain country wearing NF and this made me a bit weary. NF getting too commercialised and not worth the price for me.

But, I will check out Montbell when I go Tokyo next year. =P Maybe they will have a nice triclimate jacket that I could use.

I used before. Asked my hotel reception to fill in the form. Showed them my next hotel confirmed stay print out. Cause they need to put your check in date with your name on the form. But my luggage was medium size and not as heavy as yours. Not sure if that will be an issue.

Got a new question. In my last trip to Kyoto, I went to this small restaurant where everything is in Japanese and only sell maguro don. But the maguro is actually mixed with some soy sauce (?) and sesame before putting on the rice bowl. Anyone know what this is called and where I can find something similar in Tokyo? The maguro really no fishy taste and I love that. All the other tuna cuts I had eaten (including otoro in Hokkaido) still have some fishiness.

Can visit in mid Dec and take the cable car ride?

its open all year round. They have cable car and chair lifts. But during my visit the chair lifts were closed for maintenance. I would prefer the chair lifts. But the best time to visit is during koyo season.

I would suggest u stay over there for the night (i'm guessing it would be much more cost effective than taking a taxi)
