itinerary check and luggage questions


My planned itinerary is as follows:
Day 1: Arrive at Narita in the afternoon and directly go to Osaka
Day 2-3: Stay in Osaka
Day 4: Osaka - Tokyo area
Day 4-8: Stay in Tokyo
Day 9: Return to Narita airport

My questions are as follows:

  1. I'm thinking to buy the 7 days nationwide JR pass for the first 7 days, but not sure how to travel around Tokyo on day 8 and going back to Narita on day 9. Please advice about the transport and also if the itinerary is ok or is it better to go to Osaka on other days.
  2. I will be travelling with family (2 adults and 2 children) and will bring 4 cabin size luggages. Can we bring all luggages along within the trains (JR and shinkansen)?



Hello there,

1.) I recommend using an IC card like Suica or Pasmo for travel around Tokyo. This will make your life a lot more convenient when it comes to traveling.

2.) Yes, no problem!

Hope this helps,
