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!
NEX+SUICA is Narita airport specific bundle with a smartcard thrown in(SUICA) to compensate NEX limited coverage. SUICA can be used for 10 years. And it's like our EZ-LINK card. After the initial value of 1500 yen used up, or runs low, you will need to top it up with new value.
Suica & N'EX | Fares & Passes | JR-EAST

Kanto Area Pass has a wider coverage, as its name suggested. Kanto area pass better or not is all depends on how you want to use it. If you do one trip out from Narita to kawaguchi, then second day goes to Nikko and 3rd to Karuizawa, then this Kanto Area pass is very worth.

BTW, I am quoting Nikko and Karuizawa as I intend to visit there, it doesn't mean they are the best places to go from kawaguchi. But if you don't intend to cover far away places and mainly just want to hang out in Tokyo city, then NEX+SUICA is best for you. The Metro also have all kind of day passes you can make use of to save money, assuming your itinerary can be covered nicely by the metro.

If you have time and not in a rush, you can take local trains from Narita into Tokyo. Less than 1200yen can bring you to the city. It's cheaper than NEX.

Please wait for more input from those very experienced bro/sis here. My last trip to japan was more than 20 years ago. And I cannot wait to make my second trip there this Sunday.

I am planning to get the suica+nex round combo when i reach. I understand there is a 14 day limit for the return trip on the nex.

I arrive on 22-Dec and leaves on 4-Jan, which is the 14th day. Would the card still be usable ? does it means it stop working on the 14th day or 14th day is the last usage day ...

thanks for any help

suica card is valid for 10 years from the date of the last charge.

I think 14th day is the last day you can use. check with the staff at the airport.

SUICA and PASMO is essentially the same kind of smart card. Like our ezlink vs Nets Flashpay.

Just If you don't want kanto Area pass, just get NEX+SUICA. and take bus from either Tokyo station or Shinjuku station to Kawaguchiko
