We (a couple in good health and can walk 5-7 miles a day) really need some help and guidance on an already-paid for trip to Tokyo, Japan to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.
Here is the plan: Flight out from Chicago to Tokyo on March 9 and coming back on March 15. Will be staying at the Hotel Gracery Shinjuku (Godzilla hotel). We will have 4 full days in Tokyo with no firm plan yet.
Need advice on:
1. How to get from the Narita airport to the hotel. We borrowed a couple books from the library and also searched for advice online. It is very confusing. We could take a taxi but that would be very expensive. We read about Japan Rail (JR) system and subway but not sure what line to take. Also, for the JR system, it said that we have to purchase the pass before arriving Japan.
- If someone can guide us with good information on means of transportation from the airport to the hotel.
What wild and not so wild things we can do in Tokyo. The wife (boss) wants to see Mt. Fuji - so Mt. Fuji we will see. Thus, we have 3 full days left.
The boss likes to shop. I like electronic gadgets and street food.
Would tennis shoes and jeans be suffice? Japanese seem to be very well dressed.
