  1. We are going to Japan on Jan. 7th next year 2019 and scheduled to arrive on January 8, 2019 at 5:00 PM. Our first time in Japan and not knowing the language, I have to do some research beforehand ... We will be staying at Shibuya Granbell hotel. Best way and train to get to that hotel is which line and which stop to get off to walk to hotel? What are our options and how much do they cost? It would be me and my wife. Do we buy the Suica card ahead of time or do we buy it when we arrive at Narita Airport? If so, where can we get it at Narita? Or should we just buy those packaged limo bus and train ticket options? Thank you. Dave

    Kato's original 253 (Narita Express) set...

    I’ve come into the possession of three 253 series cars which I believe are from Kato’s old Narita Express set 10-182. As this set is so old (circa 1995), I’m having trouble finding information on it. Does anyone have this set and if so, would they be kind enough to provide a scan of the information sheet that comes with it? A very small amount of TLC is required – wheel cleaning and a spare pantograph as it is missing. I’ve also disassembled and confirmed that the lighting (including interior lighting) uses grain of wheat bulbs, all working but dependant on wheel cleaning for good electrical contact. Finally, I’m wondering how to add the Narita Express logo to the middle car – the logo is present on the newer set but not the older set.
