Hi there,

Looking at your itinerary, I would stick to buying normal tickets. The JR Pass works great for longer intercity trips and a return Tokyo - Kyoto for instance is a good route to use the JR Pass on.

You'll be travelling one way and also have a couple of regional side trips, these however cost less than the price of a 7 day JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
