I'll visit Tokyo in late August to attend a training course. Business attire is recommended. Help!

We'll visit some Japanese companies and I must dress appropriately, but I'm not used to business clothes. Also, I'm told the weather will be very hot and humid. What kind of clothes should I wear to make a good impression and not melt in the heat? Extra points for shoes and handbag tips.
Google says not to wear revealing clothes, and to be very formal. Would it be ok to wear a short sleeved fitted blouse?
I don't live in the US, so store recommendations are not helpful.
About me: I'm 28 years old (but look younger) and thin. I'm a graphic designer, and I usually wear casual clothes to work. I like to wear skirts and dresses, but I'm not a fan of high heels.
