We have planned our travel and would really appreciate your advice if a JRR Pass will be useful for us (2 adults, 2 children 8/11 yo). Here's our plan by the day:

1 - Arrive at Kansai Airport, take train into OSAKA
2 - Nara day trip
3 - Universal Studios
4 - Kyoto day trip
5 - Travel to TOKYO
6 - Hakone day trip
7/8 - Disney
9 - around Tokyo
10 - Travel to Echigo Yuzawa (spend 4 days, may travel to see Jigokudani Snow Monkeys)
14 - Travel back to TOKYO (depart from Haneda Airport to home 2 days later)

Any advice you can provide on suitable passes to purchase would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Hi there,

I checked the route that you'll be traveling and I must say that the most economic option for your itinerary would be to just buy normal tickets during travel. This because normal tickets prices are below that of the cost of a 7 day JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
