Day 1 - night in Tokyo
Day 2 - train it to Osaka - explore Osaka that day were staying in the main city
Day 3- universal
Day 4- Osaka aquarium then train it to Kyoto
Day 5- explore Kyoto
Day 6 - see temples and go to Namba
Day 7 - train it to Tokyo - explore surrounding city's
Day 8 - Disneyland
Day 9 - Disney sea
Day 10 - find the mega Pokemon center and explore shibuya and other areas
Day 11 - explore more Tokyo
Day 12 - train and bus it to more parts of the city
Day 13 - train it to the airport

Hi there,

Yes a 7 day JR Pass is well worth considering for your itinerary. The price of a 7 day JR Pass is about the same as a return ticket Tokyo - Osaka using the bullet train. Now you get the return trip and 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price.

Any additional travel you will do with it is basically what you can save. I would advise using the JR Pass from Day 1 - Day 7 for the best possible savings.

Hope this helps,
