Hi there,

A JR Pass would definitely be worth it for your trip, because you will do a lot of travel.

You could buy a NEX return ticket but you could also use the JR Pass for one way and simply buy normal tickets to return to Narita Airport, tickets for local trains are as low as 1,200yen but either way would work.

Hope this helps,
