Just want to add one thing about timing. While no reservations are needed for local trains/subways and you can just show up as Joan mentioned, some waiting can be required. This is particularly true for big stations, and with JR stations.
While it is just a bit of inconvenience in most cases, I would be careful and plan this in if you are taking another train to get to the Shinkansen. If you are getting on at Station A to go to Tokyo Station for the Shinkansen and they make you wait at Station A for assistance, you may not make it to Tokyo Station as fast as you expected and therefore may be in a rush, or not make it.
