Hi there,

1.) The ticket office at Narita Airport is open until 21:45, so there is more than enough time to activate your pass.

2.) It depends how long you will be in customs/baggage collection. This train ride itself with take about 4 hours.

3.) I would advise a normal JR Pass for the first 7 days and buy normal tickets for travel in Tokyo, as local travel around the metropolis is not that expansive.

Hope this helps,
