Hi Harvind,

Looking at your itinerary, I think using a 7 day JR Pass from D3 to D9 would fit your itinerary best. The most expansive routes are Osaka - Hiroshima. Kyoto - Takayama and Takayama - Hakone. Now you have all of these covered and you can make nice savings compared to purchasing normal tickets.
