My husband and I are going to Japan from July 16 through the 23rd, and are picking up our son who has lived there for 2 years. We are renting an apartment in Nakano, so that will be our base camp. Since we'll be doing travel 8 days instead of 7, we wondered what we should do...
We will be going from Narita to Nakano. We were told we will travel to Shinjuku and then change trains to the Chuo line. Where can we find time tables for the Chuo Line?
Our son has many places planned for us to visit, but I'm not sure what days for the different days. He has Nikko, Yokohama, Minato Mirai, Kanagawa, Kunitachi, Tachikawa, Machida, Ueno, Omiya, the Meiji Shrine, the Imperial Palace, Akihabara, Kamakura and the Odawara Castle (yup, all in a week's time!).
Should we purchase a 7-day pass and a one-way N'Ex and Suica pass? I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by the whole procedure. Also, how do you reserve a seat on the Narita Express if you don't have your ticket yet?
Please help a very confused tourist but a very excited tourist. Thanks!
