Hi there,

Here is the cost breakdown for your trip:

  1. Nagoya > Odawara: ¥8900, (71mins, 282km)
  2. Odawara > Tokyo: ¥1450, (36mins, 83km)
  3. Tokyo > Kyoto: ¥13420, (164mins, 513km)
  4. Kyoto > Arashiyama: no route found
  5. Arashiyama > Kyoto: no route found
  6. Kyoto > Nara: ¥690, (44mins, 41km)
  7. Nara > Kyoto: ¥690, (44mins, 41km)
  8. Kyoto > Hiroshima: ¥10990, (112mins, 380km)
  9. Hiroshima > Nagoya: ¥13230, (165mins, 528km)

JR ticket cost: ¥49370 for 7 legs

  • 14 day rail pass (¥45,100) saving: ¥4270

As you can see, a 14 day pass will make sense, but only if you do the trip to Hiroshima. Please note that I have not included use of the JR lines around Tokyo - you can potentially get good use of the JR pass in Tokyo by using JR lines (map).

If you do not include the Hiroshima leg, then I think you'll be better off purchasing individual tickets as needed.

Hope this helps!
