Which pass to use!?!

Some friends and i will be in Tokyo for 10 days from Dec 6-16 and do not know which pass to get. I have been trying to research but it is leading me to too much headaches. I know for sure we are doing the limobus and 2 day metro pass special. I'm all about convenience, especially having to walk with luggages. So for that, I am all set. However for the remainder of the trip much help would be appreciated. I have included a tentative itinerary. Some things are repetitive. Part of our group is only staying for 5 days, so we are trying to accommodate for them as well.

Friday, Dec. 6: Arrive in Narita (3:55 pm)

Arrive at apartment between 6-7 pm (Tokyo Midtown)

Saturday, Dec. 7:

Tokyo Sky Tree- want to go during sunset/night time
Shibuya (cypher adickts @ 8m)

Sunday, Dec. 8:

Freestyle Sessions (2-10pm)

Monday, Dec. 9:

Shinjuku- Robot Restaurant

Tuesday, Dec 10:

Disney Sea

Wednesday: Dec. 11- friends leave that day.

Roppongi (Mori Tower)

Thursday: Dec. 12:

Nozawa Onsen or Mt. Naeba

Friday: Dec. 13:

Nozawa Onsen or Mt. Naeba

Saturday: Dec. 14:

Hi there!

Looks like a very fun trip to Tokyo and I think that it will work out great with a group. There are no transport difficulties and all is close together! Looking at it this way I don't think that there's a pass which would help you a lot, in stead I would recommend buying normal tickets and use an IC card such as Suica to cover your travel. This is by far the most convenient way and usable for (almost) any kind of transport in Tokyo.
I think that you are already planning it all very well, so there's not much for me to add.

Happy travels!
