We wont be activating our rail passes for several days into our holiday when we start travelling but will be in Tokyo before with a few day trips which will involve using the metro to get to. Thinking it might be worth getting a suica card for travel as it this seems an easy option rather than buying several tickets. How much should we put on the card for approx 3 days sightseeing?

Many thanks

Say about 1000 yen, about $10, I never really paid attention to how much each ride cost us but the app gives me a history, so here is a page of it.

As you tap on / out it lets you know your balance so if need be you can top card up at machines in stations or at combini stores etc. As you can see I used my card to buy things other than transport! :-)

Sorry to jump in, how did you get the card, I had a look online and on I noticed a deposit was needed, is this correct and how easy is it to get the deposit back?

Easy to buy from machines once you arrive, and ALL cards sold have a deposit on them of quite a small amount, about 5 or so I think. At the end of the holiday you can go to the ticket office at the station, hand back the card and they will give you money left on card (and the deposit) back in your hand as cash.

I bought mine on ebay before I went on holiday

You can get them from vending machines at the train station at the airport (NRT, but assuming HND will be the same). Theres videos on YouTube of exactly where the machines are if you want to get your bearings before your arrive, that's what I did just so I had an idea where I was going.

If you have children you can get a half price suica card from the JR manned office. It is a single piece of paper plus show your passport. Easy peasy - there is an office at lower 1f in Narita with an English speaking staff member.
