Problems to Anticipate and Solutions Suggested

In Japan there will be many problems that you'll face, such as jet lag, one of many things, jet lag will get you confused on your sleeping patterns and days and nights, so to help that you can go to bed in the morning in America and think it is night time in Japan and then wake up in night in America and think it is morning in Japan.

Another problem is pick pocket people, in populated areas there will be more people that pick pocket then less populated areas, such as Tokyo. People can come from behind and the just grab into your pocket and or you purse and just steal your wallet and then run or walk away from your area, when this happens you'll be on the streets of Tokyo trying to find some money or nothing to buy or eat. To solve this you can leave your wallet and take some money from your wallet, NOT ALL OF IT, you can just bring a few yen ( aka Japanese money.) Then you wouldn't have all of your money stolen and then you could have some money left if it does get stolen. These problems can be solved easily if you improvise to these problems.
