Is the JR pass worthwhile

I’ve calculated the cost of my itinerary using the fare calculator but the result suggests that it’s not worthwhile to purchase the pass but better to purchase individual tickets.
I’m unable to confirm the cost of individual journeys and does the calculator included the additional cost of reserved seats. Can anyone share a link to price the cost of individually tickets.

Hi there,

To confirm the cost of individual journeys, you can cross-reference our Fare Calculator results with either Google Maps or the Navitime site.

Hope this helps!
