First time visiting Tokyo? Follow these tips

Traveling to a foreign city like Tokyo can be overwhelming, especially if you've never been there before. Even the most fastidious planners can overlook certain details or opportunities as they prepare for a Japan vacation, which is why travel review website TripAdvisor has an entire article dedicated to tips for visiting Tokyo for the first time.

Some of these ideas and suggestions may be on your list already, but take a quick look anyway to make sure there isn't anything you missed:

  • Book tours as soon as possible, especially for popular tourist destinations
  • Carry the full Japanese address of the hotel you're staying in everywhere you go
  • Download a map app on your smartphone to help you get around
  • Keep your wallet securely hidden from sight so you don't fall victim to pickpockets
  • Learn basic Japanese words and numbers so you can communicate easily with local people
  • Purchase train passes if you intend to use public transportation frequently during your trip
  • Take at least one guided tour, as you will learn lots of interesting information
  • Visit the Tourist Information Center if you require assistance

The best way to experience Tokyo is through a fully escorted tour, like those offered by Japan Deluxe Tour.
