Hi there,

Your travel plan looks good to me. The end looks a little busy but definitely doable.

The best option for a JR Pass however is a bit better. Ideally you'd do Tokyo - Kyoto ... Fukuoka - Osaka with a 7 day JR Pass. However as the pass is counted, this is currently 8 days apart. If possible I would recommend re-planning to travel 1 day later to Kyoto and do everything with a JR Pass. Otherwise a 14 day JR Pass would be the best option, a 14 day JR Pass would still give you savings compared to purchasing normal tickets.

Hope this helps,
