tips needed for taking photos of the full solar eclipse

We expect in Japan a total solar eclipse on the morning of May 21st.
As I have no experience and special knowledge for this type of photo taking, I think the best way is to ask here the quick tips and mimimum equipment I should prepare. I just have cameras/lenses/tripods and no other related gears.

The full eclipse of the sun can be observed in part of Fukushima pref. where I usually stay but ideally in a bit more southhern parts of Japan. so maybe I have to go to a vicinity of either Tokyo or Nagoya where I think I can buy a filter or two.
