Hi there,

I do recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for your route. The cost of a return ticket Tokyo - Osaka/Kyoto is about the same as a 7 day JR Pass. With the JR Pass you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price and can make good savings with any additional travel, even if its just to from Narita Airport.

Hope this helps,
