Which Pass For Tokyo 2019/2/22 02:36
I am going to Japan for 9 day, will stay at Tokyo for first 3 days.
The first 3 days will be from Airport to hotel near Tokyo City Air Terminal, Tokyo American Club, Odaiba-Aomi and Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. Is there any pass I can purchase to save transport costs.

First, which airport?
Also where are you staying in Tokyo, and where do you plan to go?
There are multiple possibilities. If you want to go from Narita to near Ueno, you could take the Keisei Skyliner, and there is a combo ticket with a 1 or 2-day subway pass.

Or for just the subway, there is a good 2 or 3 day pass.

The 3 day pass is 1500 yen, so you just need to average 500 yen a day on subway travel, which is not difficult at all.
If going through Haneda, there is a similar pass for that like the Skyliner combo ticket.

Or some people just get IC cards - they are very convenient, but there is neglible savings in them.

There is no one size fits all - it depends on your plans. Choose the option that works best for you.

I donft bother with transit passes within Tokyo, since therefs several companies each with their own passes that donft work on each otherfs lines. I find it more stressful to have to use a sub-optimal route or to even think about who owns which lines. You may end up buying a pass that doesnft pay for itself AND you pay out of pocket for the trips that arenft covered, so you end up paying more than if you just paid out of pocket for everything. I suggest just loading up a Suica and not worrying about it.

It helps if you donft bounce all over town every day. Pick an area and focus on it and you might only be taking two train rides per day: to and from your hotel.

If you want to save as much as possible, use local trains from the airport. If you want a compromise between speed/comfort and cost, the 14-day Narita Express round trip ticket for Y4,000 is a good deal.
Other passes in/around Tokyo really do not save much. Even you trip to Odaiba uses a different rail company to the JR or subway lines so you will be using multiple providers and there is no one pass that covers all of Tokyo.
