Hi Ube,

I think getting a 7 day JR Pass would work out best. You can use the pass to travel to Karuizawa, Kyoto and Tokyo.

Here's a little breakdown of ticket prices without the JR Pass.

Narita Airport - Karuizawa ¥ 8,380
Karuizawa - Tokyo ¥ 5,550
Tokyo - Kyoto ¥ 13,020
Kyoto - Tokyo ¥ 13,020

For a total of ¥ 39,970. The 7 day JR Pass is 28,300 so you would save at least ¥ 11,670. I would recommend making seat reservations when you arrive at Naria Airport for the rest of your itinerary. This because travel around new year can be very busy.

Hope this helps!
Daniel
