JR pass question

Thanks everyone for your wonderful advice!

One more question - we are arriving in Narita on May 8th and staying overnight. On May 9th we head to Tokyo where we will stay until the 12th. We have a day trip to Kamakura in there also. Then we head to Kyoto, then Miyajima, and finally back to Tokyo on May 17th. On May 20th we go from Tokyo back to the Narita airport.

Do you suggest the JR rail pass for us and if so, when should we best activate it?

You should activate it on 11st or 12nd, on which of them depends on what you plan to do on 18th. For example, Nikko day trip on 18th costs more than Kamakura day trip on 11st. so activate it on 12nd in that case.
