Personally, I'd rather buy the tickets before I arrive at Disneyland/Disneysea.
Because the crowds to enter the themepark is already pretty long, so imagine if you have to go queue to buy tickets, then join another queue to enter the themepark.


This is how it looks like when queueing to enter Disneysea.
I was pretty lucky that the queue was not that insane. It was during last year Dec which was at late morning.

It's only the queue at sushi dai which was damn insane during my trip. haha..

If you are planning to take the Narita Express train from Tokyo to Narita Airport, then consider staying near Tokyo, Shinagawa, Shibuya, or Shinjuku station.

Since I assume you will be taking Shinkansen back from Osaka, so why not try to see if you can find a reasonably priced hotel near Shinagawa station?
Because Shinagawa station has direct access to both Shinkansen as well as Narita Express train. Even if you are using Haneda Airport instead of Narita Airport, there is the direct Keikyu train from Shinagawa station as well.

Maybe try the Toyoko-inn branch opposite Shinagawa station:
????????????????????????? - ????????

Or you can try this other hotel (more expensive that Toyoko-inn though) also located opposite Shinagawa station:
SHINAGAWA GOOS????? ?????????
Thank you! Am now deciding between Shinagawa & Ueno. Read online that it's cheaper to get to Narita from Ueno? Also, which is more happening at night and early morning? Would like to use up my remaining time there as much as possible. Hotel just for luggages and showers haha

Shinjuku is more for nightlife; espically at Kabukicho.

Again, Kabukicho might be a "dangerous" place unless travelled in group.

From Ueno, you can take the Keisei Skyliner train (2400yen, non-JR train) to Narita Airport from Ueno's Keisei station.

From Shinagawa station, you can take the Narita Express (3110yen, JR train) to Narita Airport.

If you are using JR Pass and you still have JR pass coverage for your last day to cover your journey to Narita Airport, then you should use Narita Express since it's a JR train...whereas Keisei Skyliner is a non-JR train, therefore is not covered by JR pass.

If you are arriving Tokyo from Osaka the day before, the Shinkansen from Osaka will stop at Shinagawa station, but not Ueno. You will have to transfer train to reach Ueno. If you are carrying luggage, you might want to avoid taking regular trains and subways during rush hours on weekdays. Which is also why I suggested Shinagawa.

There's nothing much in Shinagawa station area, just back to hotel for sleep/shower...etc.
There's somewhat more stuffs for Ueno area though, since there's Ueno park, Ameyoko...

My advise for anyone who enters Kabukicho alone is to avoid any and all touts. Go there just to experience is okay but dun ever accept anything the touts offer.

I usually just go convenience store to buy bento for supper.
They can microwave hot for you.

Dept stores usually close pretty early, around 8pm.

What is the allowance for? Food and transport only?
