comment Do I have to go through customs, recheck my bag, etc. during my Heathrow layover?
Ok, we might have had an unusually long queue for security. I might be getting the flights confused, but I remember a long line downstairs in a "waiting area" (there was a cool holographic woman at the base of the stairs), and then once we were allowed upstairs, another line at the actual security station. So maybe this wasn't normal (it was a Saturday morning, which is probably busy). Also if you know where you're going it would be faster of course.

Ah, I didn't notice that at all (and probably more importantly, you're not told that when you book your ticket - so someone with a short connection may see that both flights are in "Terminal 5" and think that it will be ok). As for "everything on time" - if by that you mean "10 minute line at security or less" then I agree. I'm not sure what normal wait times are, but we wasted absolutely no time (i.e. straight from the plane to security to the other terminal to the gate) and it took about an hour - if we had an hour connection we would have missed the flight, and all flights were on time.

comment Proof of sufficient funds for transit in Japan
I think the cash itself will be your "proof." Bring proof (your flight itinerary) that you'll only be in the country for one night, and it will be clear that you have enough money to survive for 20 hours. And again, I'd be very surprised if they said anything. I've been through Japanese immigration 7 or 8 times and don't think I've ever been asked a single question about anything.

Thank you! Unfortunately there's only one flight per day to Nairobi, so if our inbound flight is delayed we'll be stuck in London for a night.

Ah, sorry - we're coming from New York, but am interested in places all over the world. I'm editing the question now. Thanks.
