Hello Gan,

Here is how to activate the JR Passa at Narita Airport.

For there the JR Pass will cover transport between all the cities listed above. It does not include local travel run by companies other than JR, these include the Osaka, Tokyo and Kyoto city buses. Still you can use local JR lines in many cases, without having to use the bus. For travel to Gotemba please see this page.

Hope this helps,
