If you’re planning on visiting Japan soon, you’ll want to consider bringing the following items, or buying them soon after you’ve landed.

1)Scarf is a must
"I can’t go outside without a scarf. I make sure it’s nice and snug around me so the wind won’t get me chilly.” When watching the people going around town, most of the women are wearing scarves!

2)Boots
"Boots are needed to keep legs warm – together with thicker tights. Going with bare feet is absolutely impossible." In this season, you can find warm winter tights on the first floor of most department stores!

3)Keep yourself warm with food – like nabe!
“On cold days like these, having something warm to drink really helps keep my spirits up.” Nabe hot pots are a popular way for Japanese to keep warm in winter. We made a video about this interesting cultural point as well!
