narita to shinjuku

We are due to travel to japan this april 2015 but dont arrive into narita until 2100. I have noted that the information centers are closed then and last train at 2145. Can anyone advise on what is the best way to complete this first trip?? I am a little worried as we have never been before. thank you in advance

Hi there,

If you can't exchange the JR Pass by that time, the best way is to just buy a normal one way ticket Tokyo - Shinjuku. The JR Pass is counted in full days and it's a bit of a waste to activate it that late :) Ticket machines ore 24h in operation!

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Many thanks Daniel,

One more question, Does JR pass cover metro/subway line in Tokyo as ? I saw many lines in Tokyo. While in JR pass web doesn't mentioned in detail. So I'm confusing which one cover and which one not cover.

Thanks in advance

Hi again!

All JR lines in Tokyo are covered. The subway/metro system is not.

See our map resource for all the details :)
