Help on Itinerary - Is JR Pass Worth It?

Hi!

I've been put in charge of planning my family's itinerary to Japan and I have no clue what I'm doing. Any help/advice would be appreciated. But mostly, I'm looking to see if the 7-day JR Pass is worth it four 8 day trip. And if so, what is the best strategy to use it. Here is the itinerary I have so far:

6/30
Arrive at Narita Airport
Take Nartia Skyaccess train from to Takanawadai Station to get to our hotel

7/1
Explore Tokyo
(Go to Shibuya via Yamanote Line)

7/2
Day trip to Kyoto and back to Tokyo at night
(Take Shinkansen to Kyoto)

7/3
Explore Tokyo
(Go to Imperial Palace via Keihintohoku Line; take Yurikamome Line and Tokaido Line back in evening)

7/4
Day trip to Nara and back to Tokyo at night
(Take Shinkansen to Kyoto and JR Nara Line to Nara)

7/5
Day trip to Kawaguchoko Lake
(Guided tour)

7/6
Explore Tokyo
(Go to Asakusa via Keikyu Line)

7/7
Back to Narita Airport for flight home


Please let me know your thoughts on the itinerary and when to activate the 7-day JR Pass to make the most of it.

Thank you so much!!
