2. is it any train go to narita airport as well by using JR pass ?

  1. is it worth by using JR pass or normal ticket?

Hi there,

Let's dig right into your questions.

1.) The JR Pass is good for all local JR lines in Tokyo, these can be used to see most of the city including Shinjuku and Shibuya. Asakusa unfortunately does not have a JR station.

2.) The JR Pass can be used on the Hikari Shinkansen to Kyoto and back to Tokyo. The price of a return Tokyo - Kyoto, is about the same as a 7 day JR Pass so it is well worth getting one if you use it for any additional travel. You can also use the JR Pass on the Narita Express between Tokyo and Narita Airport

Hope this helps,
