Hi Anna,

I checked your itinerary for the best options and would advise buying normal tickets for your itinerary. You basically travel in an arc from Kyoto to Tokyo via the northern side of the Japanese main Island, with the luxery of a good amount of time. When you look at the distance traveled, it's relatively not that much and a JR Pass would not be put to good use here.

It looks like a very nice itinerary though!
