Hi Fanny,

The JR Pass may not be the best option for you, from reading at your itinerary I think it would be better to buy tickets as you travel. The JR Pass proves valuable when making a certain amount of travel with it. Visiting Kyoto/Nara as day trips is not very expansive as they are close to each other. The one route that is expansive is Osaka - Mt Fuji/Tokyo but is would not be enough to pay for a JR Pass.

Have a great time in Japan!
