Hello there,

Looks like a great plan, using a 7 day JR Pass from Day 4 to Day 10. This will give you nice savings compared to buying normal rail tickets and cover all your rail travel within this period.

Please note that the bus in Kyoto is not included but there are daily bus tickets available for 500yen.

Hope this helps,
