Hi Ann,

Yes, the JR Pass will get you to all the locations you need (your map, your mothers map).

Please note that for Fuji, the JR Pass will get you as far as Otsuki (for Kawaguchiko) or Odawara (for Hakone). From here you'll need to use non-JR lines for the last leg.

As you'll be in Japan for a while, I recommend you use the JR Pass from the 8th, and use smaller tickets such as the ICOCA+Haruka deal to get into Kyoto from Kansai Airport.

I hope this helps!
