How to Get Tickets?

The most convenient way is to purchase tickets online. There are discounts that enable you to purchase ticket with cheaper price. You will also be able to skip the long lines.

How To Get Around?

JR Metro lines and subways are considered to be the most convenient way to go around Tokyo. It will be much more helpful if you own a prepaid Suica or Pasmo card for payment (can be bought through vending machines). If you're not too comfortable taking public transportations, you can also take a taxi which is the best way although it's rather expensive. You'll still have to do a lot of walking to reach most attractions.

What Should I Wear?

You might have known that Japanese pay close attention on what they wear. They are always stylish, and for travelers like you it's a perfect chance to dress as fashionable AND as comfortable as you want too. Avoid too flashy colored clothes especially if you're a young adult, as it is only wore by teenagers in Japan and it will makes you look stand out. Since you'll do a lot of walking, always opt for something more comfortable but still neat. Don't forget to wear comfortable walking shoes too.

The travel brochures and pamphlets also provide enough information for you, available in English. If they're not enough, you can buy a guidebook before departing to Tokyo. This is usually very helpful. However, it's common that first-timers can meet some difficulties because of the language barrier and culture differences.
