Should have enough time at 11:45 but if it's your first time, I suggest 12:45 instead while you had a quick lunch around the station. The Kawaguchiko bus is based at the new shinjuku bus terminal? If yes, the airport bus limousine stops there also.


Thanks ! Shall for the later bus.

Generally, drugstores and convenience stores customize their stuff depending on location but for general tourists and visitors, it'd be difficult to see which are the ones that carry diapers, especially in Shinjuku or Ginza.

I think for emergency purposes, you can request for adult diapers instead :s13:

What is the name for the large departmental stores? :D

this is the first time i am visiting a country during cold weather Feb 2017. is it a must to wear Thermal Wear + sweater + jacket? or can i wear sweater + jacket?

What about bottom? possible to just wear jeans?

many large departmental stores in japan, such as Takashimaya, Tokyu Hands, Marui (0101), Yodobashi and Bic. depends on wat u are looking for.

depends on ur cold tolerance and where u going. but since it is ur first time in cold weather, may be better to be kiasu and bring more, rather than feel too cold to enjoy, or worse fall sick.

getting a pair of gloves is important, coz most of the time it is our hands tt feels colder first. ear muff or something to cover the ears will be good too.

and u can always there if really need. uniqlo is everywhere. and things like gloves and socks can be bought from convenient stores also

Depending on budget, Daiso may have, Uniqlo. Those shops selling winter wear would have also.

Footwear, main thing is waterproof and windproof.

Zero need for thermal wear if you are just visiting cities, going in and out of malls and public transport. Do a search on winter wear in the forums. I've posted many times on how to prepare clothes for winter. Layering is the key, not thermals.

No, earmuffs not needed. Buy there if you feel the wind is too strong and cold for you. Same for beanie, not needed unless it's snowing. Just buy there if you need.

Generally if you don't mind looking silly, you can always pull up the hood of your sweater to cover your ears, tighten it and tie the strings under your chin to secure it.

Footwear just aim for waterproof shoes. Windproof or not doesn't matter. I've never really heard of using windproof shoes in cities anyway. Waterproof is enough. Make sure your feet stays dry even when walking through snow. Does Tokyo snow that much anyway? Or will you be heading to hokkaido and such for skiing?

The thing is, are you doing skiing, snow trekking and the likes? If not, don't need to bother with heattech. Just layer with tee, fleece sweater, fleece jacket, down jacket. Throw on a thin windbreaker if it's too windy. That's more than enough. You will be constantly going in and out of buildings and trains, and these places won't be freezing. In fact, you'll have to remove the outer layers when you are indoors if you don't want to start sweating.

Heattech may make you feel too warm indoors, and some people's skin don't react well to heattech material.
