Hi there,

I checked your itinerary for the best ticket options and would recommend buying normal tickets for this trip.

Travel from Osaka - Kanazawa is ¥ 7,850 and from Takayama - Tokyo ¥ 15,220. This would not be enough to make savings with the JR Pass.

For the rest, It looks like a nice trip and a good itinerary for a week's travel.

Enjoy Japan!
