Day 3 : kyoto one day tour from osaka. (Fushimi inari,arashimaya, gion)
Day 4 : nara + kobe from osaka and go to Tokyo by shinkansen.
Day 5 : asakusa area+ tokyo sky tree +yokohama portland in night
Day 6 : lake kawaguhiko/hakone + odaiba

Hi Tresti,

Yes, the JR Pass is well worth it for your itinerary. Just traveling Osaka - Hiroshima (¥ 10,440), Hiroshima - Osaka (¥ 10,440) and Osaka - Tokyo (¥ 14,450) will help you make good savings with the JR Pass. Any additional travel will only add to that.

The itinerary looks good for the most part but I think doing Kobe and Nara in a single day and then also travel to Tokyo is too much. Consider going either to Nara or Kobe and then travel to Tokyo, you can always come back to Japan an 2nd time ;)

Hope this helps,
