Hello there,

The JR Pass covers as good as all of your travel here.

If we would do a bit of nit picking then the Tokyo Metro is not included (but you can use the JR in many cases) and Ishiyamadera is better accessed by Keihan railway from Kyoto but you can also the JR to Ishiyama and walk the last bit (about 1.2KM, or use the Keihan from there).

In short, the JR Pass is work great with your travel!

Hope this helps,
