1st train  
Disadvantage of first train to Comiket: crowds. advantage: not getting lost. tip for winter: put your suica in your glove for faster passing through subway gates.

I had never heard of Suica before, but did some research on it. Very cool.

Suica - RFID Smart-Card, Rechargeable in value, for transit payment. Similar to a bart ticket, but more useful for other purchases, and no physical contact with machine required for payment.

Yup, works in Tokyo for almost any transit system. I was carrying it in my passport case at first, and then thought I'd better put it somewhere useful. I have an RFID-proof passport case, lol.
