7 Days or cheaper to buy a 14 Day

Apologies if you have answered this question before. My first intended use of pass would be:
morning of 30 June (Tokyo to Kyoto)
2nd use: 03 July (Kyoto to Nara)
3rd use: 04 July (Nara to Osaka)
4th use 06 July (Nara to Hiroshima)
5th use 07 July (Hiroshima to Osaka)
6th use (morning of) 08 July ( Osaka to Tokyo (Haneda))

This is 8 days, is it cheaper that I pay a separate fare from Tokyo to Kyoto instead of the first use to accommodate the 7 day pass limitations or would it be cheaper to buy a 14 day pass or should I cancel the single overnight return stay in Osaka and go directly back to Tokyo from Hiroshima .
Another different question is how to find information on which is the best or appropriate exit out of particular large city train terminals (as I believe so have multiple exits).
Thank you so much

Hi there,

The difference is pretty close, a one way ticket Kyoto to Tokyo is around 14.000yen, while the price difference is roughly 16500 . So if it is only a one way ticket, then that is the better option. If you did do a little more travel with the 14 day JR Pass, then that would be the way to go.

As for stations, there are a couple good website and apps that have station guide. Usually, a Google Search such as Tokyo Station Guide will find you plenty of good options. You can also find station maps on the pages of each JR operator.

Hope this helps,
