Help- need travel advice

Arriving in Tokyo on April 23 night ( Saturday) and departing on April 27 ( Wednesday) . What train pass or passes do I need to buy if we need to take :
( 1) the Narita Express from Narita Airport to Shinjuku station ( arrival on Sat night and need to go back to airport on Wednesday) (2) will be travelling around Tokyo local sites using train ( Sunday, Monday, Wednesday) (3) will be taking one day trip from Tokyo-Kyoto- back to Tokyo same evening? ( Tuesday)

Thank you for any advice you can give me....


Hi there,

I recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for your trip. The JR Pass is almost the same price as a normal return Tokyo - Kyoto. There are great savings to be had here with all the other travel added in, such as the Narita Express, local travel in Tokyo and travel back to the airport.

Hope this helps,

Does the 7day JR Pass include travel to Tokyo- Kyoto- Tokyo ( via bullet train)?

Does it include all local Tokyo travel ( subways and buses)?
