My daughter and I are going, mainly to meet my cousins for the first time. We will be flying into Narita airport, staying in Tokyo for a few days. Then I thought we'd go to Kyoto because my daughter wants to go there. Our family is in the Mito/Hitachinaka area. We are going to be there for about 2 1/2 weeks. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best way to get around. I looked at the rail passes but doesn't look like they would be cost effective since we aren't traveling to a lot of places but I could be wrong. Should we use the train or bus from the airport to our hotel in Tokyo? I also thought about getting our first hotel very close to the airport just so we don't have to travel far the first day. Any advice on modes of transportation would be appreciated.

It may be best just using Buses if you move only a few time.
Rental cars are the most useful but costly.
From your airport, there will be a lot of bus going to Kyoto.
You should make reservation for cheap bus if you try to find budget option.
Kosokubus website might help.


Capervans are one of the option.
It might be more costly to rent compare to small cars,
but you can save the cost of hotels.
So in total, it is so much cheaper.
I liked this option when I went to Hokkaido.

For going to Mito area, train may be the easiest since there is not so many bus going there.
Just avoid rush hour around Tokyo, there is no space for people with big luggage.
Day time is relatively spacious.
