It depends on the details of your itinerary. For example, A one way trip from Tokyo to Kyoto to Osaka to Kobe, for example, will not pay off. But a Tokyo-Osaka-Tokyo round trip by regular shinkansen tickets costs about the same as a 7-day Japan Rail Pass.

Note also that you could travel even cheaper by overnight buses:

So are you flying into Narita, and flying out of Kansai international airport, meaning, only going one way from Tokyo to Osaka/Kyoto? Then even a 7-day Japan Rail Pass does not pay off. If you are going one way, then you can just buy single Shinkansen tickets.

Tokyo - Kyoto by JR Shinkansen train takes about 2.5 hours.
