Hi there,

Looking at your itinerary, I think it would be more economic to buy normal tickets for your travels than buying a JR Pass. This because the cost of tickets will simply be lower. A JR Pass would be useful if you made a return Kyoto/Osaka - Tokyo.

You can check fares in our fare calculator.

Hope this helps,
