Which railpass should I buy ?

Jump to last reply

Please help with selecting the appropriate rail pass to buy. We will arrive at 8 am at Narita airport and plan to take the Narita Express to Tokyo station then cab to our hotel, the Conrad in the Shiodome area. We will be in Tokyo for 5 nights/6 days and plan to make 1 day trip, maybe to see Mt Fuji if weather conditions cooperate, Yokohama or Narra ( still deciding on this one ).

Which railpass should we buy? I read about the Suica + N'ex card for overseas visitors, it looks like a good value for the kind of travel we plan to do in the greater Tokyo area plus the trip from Airport to downtown Tokyo upon arrival. Which rail pass would you suggest? Also, it seems like there is a limo bus that leaves NRT airport to downtown Tokyo. is this a better option for 2 people traveling light?

Thanks for your input!
