What do you think?


Hi there,

I think unless you intend to take day trips out of Tokyo (for example to Nikko) I recommend you take a 7 day Japan Rail Pass to start on day 5. In addition you should purchase the Suica N'EX combined ticket from Narita on arrival to give you some free travel on the metro around Tokyo.

Hope this helps!
