Hi! Planning my first trip to Japan in June and I have A LOT of questions. We’ll be staying at an AirBnb in Shimokitazawa and have not really set up an itinerary yet. We’ll have 5 days to spend in Tokyo.
Here are a few questions I have:
- If we plan to take a day trip Hakone and also use the NEX to get to and from Narita, should we purchase a JR Pass or single tickets? Is a JR Pass useful in the city as well?
- Any suggestions for what we should see and do in our short time there?
- Can anyone suggest restaurants that might be able to accommodate food sensitivity or allergy?
- Is Hakone walkable or do we need to use more public transpo there?
We appreciate your help!
