hi Daniel.

i will be touching down in Narita Airport on the 14th april 2pm. i will then activate my pass to go Osaka.

with this pass, it covers the route to Osaka, Nara,Kyoto and back to Tokyo.

My question is, i wont be able to use the pass within Tokyo, Nara and Kyoto. so do you suggest day passes to travel within these cities? I am getting the metro pass in Tokyo since i will be there for 8 days. I will only spending one day in Nara and Kyoto, so im not sure if its worth it to get the day pass.

Am i supposed to book seats to get on the shinkansen in Narita airport itself?

Hi there,

For Kyoto you can buy a 500yen day bus ticket that will get you trough the whole city.

Nara is very small and your best pass to everything there are your own feet.

The Narita Express does to Narita Airport does need a reservation beforehand, you can make a reservation at any JR station.

Thank you!
