We will be traveling to Japan with our 4-yr old son. Do we get both JR Pass and Suica cards? For JR Pass, 7-day or14-day pass? If we get JRP, should we get one for our son too if we want reserved seats in Shinkansen?

When you use escalater, you should stand on the left side and keep the left for the people in rash. But this rule works in Tokyo and it becomes opposite in Osaka (the left side is for people in rash).

leo leo, Living in Japan

I think Shinjuku is the best place to stay in Tokyo because the Shinjuku station is the central for wherever you want to go. There also many restaurants and covenience stores so you will never be inconvenience. The hotels are rather expensive in that area but there're reasonable ones if you resarch.
