It is not quite clear, looking at the map provided with the Rail Pass, which other destinations (apart from the obvious ones) one can go to. The infornmation on the map, different colours and small print (exceptins/restrictions) is slightly confusing, especially when - as one finds - there are other train operators in Japan too - with the result that it is often necessary to ask at the information desk which trains are available to further destinations, and how far north or south one can go, or if there really IS any local bus service available under the Pass.
Using Japan Rail Pass was the best way for my family to travel in Japan. It was easy to registered and really easy to use while traveling.
