Hi there,

That's plenty of travel. I made a list of normal ticket prices, since it is kinda fun to look at how much you can saving using a JR Pass.

Kansai Airport - Nagoya ¥ 7,850
Nagoya - Takayama ¥ 6,230
Takayama - Nagoya ¥ 6,230
Nagoya - Hiroshima ¥ 14,010
Hiroshima - Miyajima return ¥ 1,180
Hiroshima - Fukuoka ¥ 9,140
Fukuoka - Nagasaki ¥ 4,700
Nagasaki - Fukuoka ¥ 4,700
Fukuoka - Osaka ¥ 15,200
Osaka- Nara ¥ 800
Nara - Osaka ¥ 800
Osaka - Himeji ¥ 3,940
Himeji - Osaka ¥ 3,940
Osaka - Kyoto (return) ¥ 1,120

For a total of ¥ 79,840 or ¥ 34,740 in savings, as the 14 day JR Pass is ¥ 45,100. This is excluding every one way from Nagoya to the Suzuka race track, which is ¥ 1,060 / one way and covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
