Hello there,

For this route it would be better to buy normal tickets as you travel. This because tickets for the route you want to travel is below the cost of a 14 day JR Pass.

The route Tokyo - Takayama - Kanazawa - Kyoto is almost the price of a 7 day JR Pass, so you could consider one if you can cover the route with it and do a little more with it as well.

Hope this helps,
