Hello everyone.. Thanks to everyone for taking the timeout to read and respond ! I have two questions
1. I read that a round trip from Tokyo to Osaka (or Kyoto?) and back would make the JR pass worth it . However, we arrive in Tokyo and Fly out from Osaka (21 May onward) so am not sure if this is needed or not ?
We will be in Tokyo for 5 nights - Disney, City tour, Hakone day trip (with romance car), and some city stuff including watching Sumo (yay!)
I am not sure if we need a JR pass? We are a family of 5 + 2 kids (although I don't think that matters)
2. We arrive Tokyo early morning 6:30 AM at Narita Airport. We are staying at Kieo Plaza and I called them to check reg early check in. The usual check in time is 3PM but they said 1PM can be done for free. However, for check-in around 9 AM they are essentially charging me one full night as they will have to block a room for the night. I do get that this is reasonable but wondering if there is a way out to this? We plan to go watch sumo the same day so will need to check in and freshen up before we leave post an early lunch
Thanks again everyone ; your suggestions are always so helpful !
