As with any cheap travel deals, or cheap train tickets Japan Rail Pass does have some restrictions. Before you travel Japan check with Japanese Railways, a travel agent, or tour operator for the current terms and conditions for using cheap train tickets or a Japanese Rail Pass for cheap travel in the country.

Unlike some cheap airfares, the price of Japan Rail tickets closely relate to the distance traveled. To benefit most a Japan Rail Pass is best used for cheap travel in Japan over long distances.

For example, if you travel Japan from Tokyo to Kyoto on the first day, and then travel from Kyoto to Hiroshima the next day, and on the third day return travel to Tokyo - a Japan Rail Pass would be cheap travel, even though only three days out of seven and used.

Compare that to using a Japan Rail Pass regularly over a two-week period to travel between Tokyo and Kyoto or Osaka. In this case, buying a Japanese Rail Pass wouldn't equate to cheap train tickets, because the travel distance wouldn't be great enough to justify buying a 14 day Japan Rail Pass.
