Winter Boots in March?

Hello. I will be flying to Tokyo this Monday and was wondering if it is still snowing and if I need to bring winter boots. I would like to pack very lightly and was planning on wearing leather sneakers. However, I am afraid that they might not keep my feet warm enough if it is still snowing. Could somebody please advise me if there is a need to bring winter boots? I will be attending a trade show at Makuhari Messe and then will visit Disney Sea. Thanks in advance.

Tokyo doesn't usually snow often or heavily. You can check better weather websites, or go to JMA's site:

There shouldn't be much snow if any when you go. You probably won't be going to Disney Sea if it snows so much you need to wear boots and you might not need to walk around much outdoors for the trade show. Just pack or buy warm socks (Japan sells great socks) if your feet get cold. I've trudged around Japan in the snow wearing leather sneakers and had no problems.

I don't recommend snow boots but regular leather knee high or mid-calf boots are always in in Tokyo. You'll see many women wearing them until May.

I don't think you need to worry about this in Tokyo. If your shoes can handle rain then you should be fine.
