Hi Yuli,

I recommend to use a 7 day JR Pass. It does not matter than much when you start using it, as long as you include the trip to Osaka and back to Tokyo with it. These are the most expansive routes.

There is no real difference between Suica or Pasmo, its the same kind of product by different companies. For more details on IC cards see: http://www.jrpass.com/blogs/benefits-of-prepaid-travelcards

The day of purchase is leading whether your child can use a JR Child pass, as long as he/she is below the age of 12 when you place your order, they can qualify.

Hope this helps,
