Hi Nora,

Glad to see your plan is coming together nicely.

1 & 2.) A 7 JR Pass could be useful for your travel if you can use it to travel to Osaka - Tokyo and be back in Nagoya by the end of it's validity period. Otherwise I think that it would better to buy tickets as you travel - which is the way your itinerary is now. The order of travel is fine!

3.) Both Tokyo, Kyoto and Nagoya has great places for Sakura viewings. In Tokyo, head to Ueno park, in Nagoya visit Yamazakigawa and Nagoya Castle and Kyoto is nice everywhere!

4.) Looks good! I am sure that your kids will love it!

Let me know if you have any other questions!
