A few questions on Tokyo transport...

1)Is the area that the JR pass covers the whole JR-Yamanote loop?

2) Can i get from Narita airport to central tokyo on the tokyo metro? On the JR pass?

3) I hear trains close at 11pm is it? Is that for metro and overland(JR)?

Thanks for your help!

1) yes

2) metro doesn't go to the airport. JR pass doesn't cover metro. You can take take JR Narita Express train that is covered by the pass

3) every line is different, between 11pm to 1 am. check www.hyperdia.com and click on English

1) Suica and NEX package for 3,500 yen: www.jreast.co.jp/e/suica-nex/index.html

This combo consists of 1,500 yen Narita Express and connecting trains rides to your final destination in Tokyo Area, a 500 yen suica card which is refundable after use and 1,500 yen suica credit that can be used on any public transport in and around Tokyo, and the credit can be topped up via the ticket machine etc as you need it.

Please reminded that when you have the suica card deposit refunded, make sure you have no credit balance left on it, otherwise JR charges you a handling fee of 210 yen for the credit balance refund.
