Hi there,

When considering the JR Pass, its best to start looking at the longer trips first. As those are most expensive and can give you the best possible savings. This would be travel from Narita Airport - Osaka (¥ 17,100) and Kyoto - Kawaguchiko via Otsuki station (¥ 15,450 covered by the JR Pass + 1,140 addition fare). These two routes already cost more than the cost of a 7 day JR Pass (¥ 29,110) and any additional travel you'd cover with the JR Pass would only add more to your savings.

Hope this helps,
