You can purchase your tickets early online, but the ticket website is in Japanese. You can either use google chrome or translate on your phone to read through the menus. You can also purchase tickets at any Japanese 7-Eleven using their copy/ticket machines (about Y500 more expensive, but worth it). A little work to save you a lot of waiting time in line. Also, check the night prior what the weather would be like so you don't go any days when you can't see anything.

Most go for your first time in Tokyo. If you're lucky, you can see Mount Fuji

If you are a foreign tourist, and you really want to make it up to the top while there is a long queue, it may be worth it for you to buy a fast ticket for 4,000Y. It covers both observatories, and from getting in line to buy our tickets to getting up there had to have been about 5 minutes total! (We were told the queue was at least an hour at this point.)

There are also goodies you can only buy in the shop at the top of the Skytree, so you can pick up an extra special souvenir to show you made it up there.
