Hi Kit,

It may sounds strange but I would actually recommend buying normal tickets for the above itinerary. The JR Pass is great if you travel on a couple of Shinkansen routes. For instance a return Osaka - Tokyo will quickly pay off. However your itinerary basically is a one way trip Osaka - Tokyo with a couple of nice stops on the way.

Enjoy Japan!

Hi Again,

WIth normal tickets I mean buying tickets as you would do normally at the station, in the event when don't have a JR Pass.
