I'll be traveling in April, for one week, from Tokyo, Kamakura, Kyoto, Hakone, Sendai, Yamagata, Matsushima, and back to Haneda. Is it worth it to get the JR pass? Does it mean I have to take the slowest Shinkansen?
Thank you.

Hi there,

I would recommend purchasing a JR Pass, it'll likely come out cheaper than purchasing your tickets individually. To get to Hakone, you'll need to purchase a separate round trip ticket from Odawara, as the RomanceCar limited express isn't covered by the JR Pass.

Apart from that, your itinerary is fully covered :)

Hope this helps!
