Hi there,

The good news is that the majority of your travel is covered by the JR Pass. Certainly your intercity travel is 100% covered:

  1. Kansai airport > Osaka: ¥2,600 (53mins, 57km)
  2. Osaka > Tokyo: ¥13,950 (194mins, 556km)
  3. Tokyo > Kyoto: ¥13,420 (164mins, 513km)
  4. Kyoto > Osaka: ¥540 (28mins, 42km)
  5. Osaka > Kansai airport: ¥3,340 (57mins, 64km)

JR ticket cost: ¥33,850 for 5 legs

In addition to this you'll get good coverage of JR lines within Tokyo. Here's a map of JR lines within Tokyo which you can use with the JR Pass. Within Osaka you can also make good use of the JR Pass, but you'll probably find that in all areas (Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka) that you'll need to use the municipal bus or subway. I recommend you look into municipal passes available here:

You can look up precise train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for JR Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
