Is JR pass better for Tokyo - Mt fuji - kyoto - osaka

Hi
Am travelling to Tokyo in Nov and want to understand if the following itinerary suits JR pass

Have booked accommodation in Tokyo, so looking at going back tokyo within a day's activities.
Day 1 Reach Tokyo, narita airport, coach to hotel(bought)
Day 2 Tokyo
Day 3 Day trip, self exploring to Mt Fuji thru train to 5th station
Day 4 Day trip, kyoto likely Gion and walk around
Day 5 Day trip, shin Osaka, likely going to shinsaibashi area
Day 6 Tokyo
Day 7 Tokyo
Day 8 fly home from Tokyo narita airport, coach to airport (bought)

Still in planning stage and I understand kyoto and osaka is quite far to do within a day.

Hi there,

I think your basic plan looks good. What I would recommend is staying at least 1-2 nights in Kyoto/Osaka. This way you have more time to explore each city and make it easier to travel around.

Also for Fuji, I recommend reading this post:

Enjoy Japan!
