Do you know japanese? If you dont at least know how to read or speak simple japanese, I dont recommend you to go by yourself man, especially bringing kids around. My bro just came back from there, and noone could give a clear direction when being asked, not even the counter staff and let alone the security guard, lol!

Probably you can consider asking for travel agencies help, some of them can even customize trip for you. There is a website in Singapore, TripZilla that consolidates tour packages from all over Singapore and probably you can look from there as a start?

Sometimes they have great travel deals too!
Meaning you haven't been there? And how come all your posts are advising tripzilla?

This is totally wrong. Don't give wrong information to the forummers here by advertising your service. Train station staff can speak basic English and give clear directions. The people in Japan are also very helpful and will go all the way out to help you.

I too don't speak japanese. I just went to Japan on my first time.
Did my homework and have many help from forumers here.
They gave so many suggestions and amend my itinerary many times.
Yes some japanese dont speak English but they are so nice and they go all the way to help you even though in different frequency.
I was lost in the trains once even though the auntie at the information counter speak english. She gave us the wrong trains to change.
It was just part of the trip fun and memory. I am hoping to go again next year.

You can check out Kanto Area Pass, if you can do 3 days of extensive travelling to/fro Tokyo surrounding(including Kawaguchi). Worth the 8000 Yen.
JR Kanto Area Pass | Fares & Passes | JR-EAST

Oh but if only just one day, is there any alternatives? Thanks!

Hmm, JR East is saying you get lots of saving if you travel from narita to kawaguchiko via kanto Area Pass. But i wonder how they packaged that "saving". You may want to use Hyperdia to double check:

Thanks bro! A few question more, is this pass cheaper than nex+suica even with top up after 3 days. And is nex+suica has unlimited travel time or need to top up too? Sorry and thanks!
