itinerary v's financial advantage?

Hello :)
I'm not sure if I'm using Hyperdia 100% correct, although it seems straight forward.... I am trying to figure out if any JR pass is worth it for our 21 day stay, perhaps for even a portion of the trip, or perhaps a JR east pass? We will obviously be using the trains to get around locally wherever we are staying, but still wonder if it is worth it in total. Thankyou in advance.

LAND TOKYO OCTOBER 26th.

OT 21- OCT 26
NARITA AIRPORT => SHINJUKU
(travel around metro: Asakusa, akihabara, tsukiji fish market etc Tokyo inc. Disney sea).

OCT 26- OCT 29
SHINJUKU => ODAWARA
(use Hakone free pass whilst in Hakone)

OCT 29 - NOV 5
ODAWARA => OSAKA
(inc. day trips to places like Nara etc)

NOV 5- NOV 7
OSAKA => KYOTO

NOV 7-NOV 12
KYOTO => OSAKA

NOV 12
OSAKA => NARITA

Thank you

Hi there,

Hyperdia is generally correct, although it can take a bit of time to get used to. I checked your itinerary to see what the best option would be for your itinerary and from what I see is that buying normal tickets would be the best option for your itinerary. A 7 day JR Pass would work well if you make the return Tokyo - Osaka within 7 days but you would have to do more travel for either a 14 or 21 day JR Pass to help you make savings. However I do see that you have a good amount of time to spend in Kyoto/Osako, so you could consider making a day trip or two from there. For instance to Hiroshima, Himeji or Kinosaki-Onsen.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thankyou Daniel, I realized I made a mistake, we are not flying out from Narita, we are flying out of Kansai Airport.

We will be making day trips out, but haven't locked in which locations yet.
Thankyou for your help.

I will check the prices of day trips we might make to see if it is worth it :)
