I can only use the Yamanote Line in Tokyo?

I read somewhere that the JR Pass only allow me to use the Yamanote Line in Tokyo, is this true or can I use other JR lines?

Hi there,

The JR Pass is valid on all JR lines in Tokyo, not just the Yamanote line. Here's a map of all the JR lines in Tokyo for reference.

Hope this helps!
