MCT only applies to actual connections which you will not have being on two separate tickets. So be sure to add additional time. JAL has published statements about baggage on separate tickets and it isn't in your favor. Be prepared to have to collect your bags at NRT & recheck them for your flight to ITM.

Being on two different tickets you are not protected under JAL's COC so plan accordingly. Flights from NRT aren't as frequent as from HND with only two flights on JL from NRT-ITM of which I'd suggest taking the 18:20 flight. To use up that time you could purchase lounge access, if you don't already have it, to refresh after the long flight.
Other options include taking the train.
