Which is the right pass for my group? Can buy separate types

Trying to decide which pass(es) to buy for my group. Can change the dates and order around for the Hiroshima/Kyoto/Rabbit Island/Tokyo section. Are the 7 and 14-day all-Japan passes the best options for us, or is a regional pass better?

Thank you!

Passenger 1:
Tokyo-Kanazawa, May 19
Kanazawa-Kusatsu Onsen, May 22 (also could use some help with this leg, since I think a bus is needed?)
Kusatsu Onsen -Tokyo, May 23

Passenger 2:
Tokyo - Hiroshima, May 26
Hiroshima-Kyoto, May 28
Kyoto-Rabbit Island-Kyoto, May 29
Kyoto-Tokyo, June 1

Passenger 3:
All of the above

Hi there,

For passenger 1.) I recommend using a Hokuriku Arch Pass or 7-day JR Pass. You can make good savings on this route and the bus to Kusatsu-Onsen is also covered by the JR Pass. Here is how to access Kusatsu Onsen

For Passenger 2:
I would use a 14 day JR Pass here, as you travel more than 7days and both travel to Hiroshima and back to Tokyo cost a lot without the pass.

3.) Same as 2 :)

Kind regards,
