Hi there,

I went over your itinerary to find the best matching option and must conclude that hte best option would be to buy normal tickets. A 7 day JR Pass would have been good if used for the return Tokyo - Hakuba and the one way to Kansai Airport. However this is more than 7 days apart and normal tickets will cost less than the cost of a 14 day JR Pass.

You can check fares via:

Hope this helps,
