The JR Rail Pass was definitely worth it for us! We changed our itinerary a bit while in Japan so I'm not even sure if we saved money by buying it or not... but either way, no regrets! Not having to buy tickets every time you want to board a train was a HUGE convenience, especially in Tokyo's crazy train stations. For people like us who aren't very familiar with rail travel or Japan's rail system, the JR Rail Pass was worth every penny (or yen)!
