Japanese train system

Jump to last reply

I am leaving for Japan on the 30th of June, and am staying in the Tokyo area for almost two months. I have been told several times that I should buy a rail pass of some kind while I'm in America. The rail system is beyond complicated to me right now, although I hope to get the hang of it once I'm there. I also know that I will be traveling to Kyoto sometime for a few days, and maybe even as far as Nagasaki. So I have a few questions.
Which pass should I buy?
Where should I buy said pass?
Do I have to buy it in America, or could I purchase one at Narita?
Can I buy multiple passes for the entire trip, or will I need to get a Suica card?
Thank you so much for all of your help, I greatly appreciate it.
