Your thoughts

We went in late March and your advice was spot on - even the ear muffs were greatly appreciated. We wore everything we took and felt very proud of the small amount of luggage we had compared to others and we never ran out of anything. You were so right about comfortable walking shoes at the end of each day our feet throbbed. Smarter shoes at night were a great tip. I would reinforce what you say about people dressing very smartly even our teenage son smartened up his look when we there! Thanks for the help. - Steve, Windsor UK

Japanese dress very chic, so tourists need to dress smart, if they don't want to look dull. Your outfits do not have to be new, just well pressed, well coordinated and confidently presented. Also having a portable WiFi card is a MUST. In spite of being one of the most sophisticated cities on earth, Tokyo does NOT have free WiFi in most obvious places like cafes or malls. - Radhika, India
