Some local transportation questions for Japan

Jump to last reply

We will be heading to Japan at the end of this month and have a few transportation questions - I just want to confirm whether my thinking is correct or not:

1. In Kyoto we are staying at a hotel near the Imperial Garden which means we will definitely be taking Karasuma Subway Line daily as well as local buses. I'm thinking the Kyoto sightseeing card at 2000 yen for 2 days is the best deal as Kyoto one day bus pass is 500 yen and Kyoto subway one day pass is 600. I know savings is almost nothing but buying a two day pass means we would only need to buy twice rather than four times ( we will be there for 4 days). Is this thinking correct?

2. Our JR Pass will expire the day after we arrive in Tokyo. We will be staying at the Manadarin Oriental right near Tokyo Station. I assume we should just buy a Suica card. Is this correct? Do we buy a Suica card for each one of us or can you just buy one and run it through for each person?

3. We have purchased JR Pass for Green Car and will be going Tokyo-Kyoto, Kyoto-Hiroshima and Hiroshima-Tokyo. Will we be able to make all our reservations at the airport when we pick up our JR Passes?

Thanks guys! Countdown is on and got to be on top of the logistics!
