1 night two days in Tokyo.. better stay at NRT or city?

Hello!

We land on June 1st at NRT at 8.35 AM on June 1st and leave to our flight to Sydney on June 2nd at 8.35 PM. We are coming back to Tokyo on June 8, but would already like to see some things.

I am not sure if we should get a hotel at the Airport and then take the train into Tokyo and come back at night and then maybe look at Narita the next day before the flight.

Or

Get a Hotel in Tokyo City (maybe a area that we wont be in the next following week when we stay in Shinjuku) and then just go back to Airport the next day.

Any recommendations for this short layover?

We could leave our big luggages at airport and just take backpacks... otherwise we have two square luggages with four wheels to carry around.

Thank you!

You've got nearly two days to spend in Tokyo. Take advantage of it and stay in the city.

If you want something different from Shinjuku, consider staying at Asakusa or Oshiage (Tokyo Sky Tree). The direct train ride is relatively cheap and takes less than one hour. You can then spend your two days focusing on Asakusa and Tokyo Sky Tree.

Or stay in a hotel attached/near Tokyo Station so access to Narita Express is easy. There are hotels very close to the station (from high end to cheaper).
