Day 9: Saturday 9 am X/X/2017
It is time to make your way back to Tokyo. Take a Shinkansen to Shin-Osaka Station and transfer lines to Tokyo Station. The ride back is a bit long, but should allow enough time to enjoy Tokyo for the afternoon and evening. Try staying in a different neighborhood than the first leg of the journey. If you did not stay in Shibuya or Shinjuku, they are fun areas that have stops along the NEX Express back to Narita Airport. Check into your lodging location and enjoy the sights and sounds of a new area of Tokyo. You can try getting tickets to a Giants baseball game, visit one of the many history and art museums, or shop along Takeshita Street in Harajuku. Try to plan for one last sushi, ramen, or your favorite dish as a final night farewell.
Day 10: Sunday X/X/2017
Depending on your flight home from Narita Airport, you may have an opportunity to use the luggage storage at your lodging location or a storage locker. Yoyogi Park is a great place for a morning stroll if you are near Shibuya or the Imperial Palace East Gardens near Tokyo Station (closed Mondays and Fridays). If you are staying near the NEX Express stop at Shibuya or Shinjuku, expect an hour train ride back to Narita Airport. Tokyo Station's NEX Express stop is a bit closer. Once you arrive at Narita Airport, be sure to drop off any cell phone or wireless hotspot rentals in a red mailbox or at the post office located in your departing terminal. Once through the checkpoints, there is a final opportunity to purchase gifts and souvenirs at one of the duty-free shops. Know the rules about bringing purchased duty-free alcohol on planes if you have connecting flights after leaving Japan. Also, there is a currency exchange booth after the checkpoint if you want to convert your remaining Yen. Grab snacks and drinks for the flight home and say goodbye to Japan for now.
