JR pass covers JR narita express? 2008/3/5 16:37
Does anyone know that JR pass covers JR narita express or not?
If yes, i'm planning to buy JR pass and will use it to Kyoto n narita , then it's really worth it, right? Considering tokyo-kyoto-tokyo cost 13.220jpyX2 and narita-tokyo-narita cost 2.940jpyx2

This is good value assuming you are going to and from Narita + Kyoto within the 7 day validity of the pass.

not for Keisei line 2008/3/5 20:30
Hi, as far as I know this pass is not valid for the Keisei Airport Express, that is a private line. But the tickets are really reasonably prized (ca. 1900Yen) and it does not make too many stops.
Best, N

Yes 2009/3/3 21:39
Yes the Narita Express is an all reserved train, so reservations are mandatory. You can make reservations at Narita Airport.

N'ex / Suica 2009/3/3 22:13
9 days with 7 day JR Rail Pass: Then consider Nex-Suica combination the arrival day, N'Ex part for the Narita Express to Tokyo area and Suica for travelling around Tokyo day 2 and day 3 to 9 by the 7 day JR Rail Pass.
( ! Not valid the other way round: Tokyo to Narita ! )
