Hi there,

It certainly makes sense to use a 7-Day JR-Pass for your itinarary, especially with the side trip to Takayama.

Here is a little breakdown of ticket prices without it.
Narita Airport --> Osaka (Umeda) ¥ 16,250
Osaka Namba (return)] ¥ 380
Osaka --> Kyoto ¥ 540
Kyoto --> Takayama ¥ 10,310
Takayama --> Tokyo ¥ 14,300

For a total of ¥ 41,780

The 7-day JR-Pass is ¥ 28,300, so you will be able to save atleast ¥ 13480.

Please note that you can't use the JR-Pass al the way to Shirakawa-ko, from Takayama the best way to go is to take an express bus.

Hope this helps,
