Basically:
– get your JR pass while abroad. It is £180 for 7 days which is good value

– when you arrive to Japan you exchange the voucher for the actual pass

– you can then start reserving seats. It is unlimited and free so don’t worry if you then don’t travel (but be mindful of others)

– most Shinkansen you can just board and there will be where to sit

– I would avoid plane for large cities as airports tend to be far
