I appreciate that it sounds trivial, but with only a small suitcase for clothes, I don't ant to find myself looking like crown among, for instance, autumn leaves.

And is September in Tokyo (and around) and Kyoto(and around) likely to be mostly hot or mostly cold? I know I need to prepare for both, but it is the balance I'm uncertain about.
