RAIL PASSES
This page will explain how those rail passes in Japan work. To make this story short, it is worth buying a week pass (Japan Rail Pass, 29,110yen) even you'd plan to ride only two round trips of Tokyo-Nikko (11,560yen for round trips) and Tokyo-Kyoto (28,220yen for round trips). All the rest rides will be your fringe benefits, so let's ride JR trains!
Just a simple example, it is worth buying the 7 days JR Pass if you could do Narita (or KIX)-Tokyo-Nagano-Kanazawa-Kyoto-Narita (or KIX) within 7 days, but not worth buying the 14 days JR Pass since the route would cost about JPY38,000.
