It was a great value and very easy to use the JR rails and Shinkansen. The only trouble was being able to know which buses the JR Pass covered.
Japan Rail Pass makes it easy to save money when you are traveling to multiple cities via the bullet train. Once you know how to make reservations it's very easy. Japan overall has made it much easier to be a tourist than any of my previous trips spanning 30 years.
We used the mobil hotspot for wifi from Japan Experience. This is highly recommended for navigating if you are a tourist. Ordering the device was easy to do on line and it was waiting for us at our hotel when we arrived. It worked perfectly and we always had a reliable wifi connection.
