Worth it to buy a pass?

My family of 13 and I are traveling to Japan this May and would like to ask if it will be worth it to get a JR Pass and which pass would give us the most savings?

Day 1 - arrive at Kansai Airport, travel via Shinkansen to Kyoto
Day 3 - Travel from Kyoto to Osaka (round trip)
Day 5 - Travel from Kyoto to Tokyo via Shinkansen
Day 10 - Travel from Tokyo to Narita Airport

Would also like to ask which trains to take from Kansai to Kyoto?

Thank you!

Hi there,

For this trip, it would not be worth it to use a JR Pass.

For Kansai Airport to Kyoto, use the Haruka Express.
