Hi Gideon,

That's actually a pretty hard itinerary to match a pass to. Let's have a look at train ticket prices and see what would work out best:

Kansai Airport - Kyoto ¥ 3,280
Kyoto - Uno ¥ 8,880
Uno - Kyoto ¥ 8,880
Kyoto - Takefu (Echizen) ¥ 4,500
Takefu - Hiyoshi (for Miyama) ¥ 6,370
Miyajama - Kyoto ¥ 740
Kyoto - Kansai Airport ¥ 3,280

Your travel it spread out too much for a 7 day JR Pass. What you could consider is using a Kansai Wide Pass for travel to and from Uno. The Kansai Wide pass would help you make some nice savings as it is 7,000yen and can be used for the return. However at the same time it is not very convenient as it does not offer seat reservations.

Hope this helps!
