Any tips on reducing cost of train travel in Japan?

Question

Hello

Next winter my family plan to travel to Japan. Train travel looks expensive. Is there any tips for reducing the cost. Otherwise we might rent a car.

I don't know much at all about renting cars and the costs for that. Though having a car gives you a lot of freedom.

But regards to the train though, you'll want the Japan Rail Pass. This is what Wiki says about it:

Quote

The Japan Rail Pass (ジャパンレールパス, japan rēru pasu), also called the JR Pass, is a rail pass for overseas visitors sold by the Japan Railways Group, and is valid for travel on all major forms of transportation provided by the JR Group in Japan, with a few exceptions.
