Hi there,

Your travel is all within the Kansai Area and it would be better to buy normal tickets for your itinerary, as tickets will cost less than the price of a 7 day JR Pass.

You possibly could look at a Kansai Wide Pass for travel to Kinosaki. However this pass does not allow for seat reservations, something I would recommend if you travel with three Childeren.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
