Hi Johan and Asha,

I checked your itinerary for the best options. You could use a 7 day JR Pass for the period 3-5 until 8-5 (I think you mean 2015). The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket using the Shinkansen between Tokyo - Osaka/Kyoto. Now you can 7 days of unlimited travel, which can come in handy when traveling locally in Tokyo or if you plan on making a day trip from Tokyo to places such as Kamakura, Nikko or Yokohama.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
