Hi Victoria, in winter I practically live with "kairo" heaters (stick them on my socks), try to stay at warm cafes (no need for kairo then) or walk a lot (moving helps to keep good blood circulation and warm me up).

As Japanese has everything you need, I recommend you have heater and kotatsu at home, bring warmer (hand warmer that you can grasp in the jacket pocket, foot warmer on your shoes, and body warmer that you can put on your underclothe) when you are going out.

Bring heavy coats, as coats here are pretty expensive and some are not warm enough.

Avoid electrical heaters as much as possible, they don't really give much heat and you will end up with very high electricity bill.
