comment Is lack of toilet paper a common occurrence in Japan?
@fkraiem, why would you say that? The public toilets missing toilet paper that I can recall most vividly were in a somewhat urban area, but I'm not sure why that has anything to do with it. I've traveled pretty much everywhere in Japan other than Hokkaido and Okinawa, from rural to metropolis.

Definitely have been in situations where the only toilet paper in a public toilet required buying from a vending box, but not in at least 12 years. Not sure if it is as common anymore,or if I just tend to be able to use ones in shops more often than when I was younger and poorer.

comment Should I buy the Suica & N'EX package to go from Narita to Tokyo?
The other advantage of the Suica card is that it saves you a lot of fumbling around getting on and off the train, as you usually won't need to stop to do fare adjustments or fumble with which part of your wallet you left your ticket stub in, thanks to the proximity swipe feature of the Suica. Also, it will come in handy for the times that your JR pass doesn't help you, like when you take the subway or one of the non-JR lines. (Yu can also read your trip history/balance on some Android phones with NFC and an appropriate app). If you can get a package deal with extra credit, so much the better.
