Hi there!

In this case you'll be looking at a 7 day rail pass I think - lets take a look at your base ticket costs:

  1. Narita airport terminal 1 > Osaka: ¥15850, (272mins, 635km)
  2. Osaka > Kobe(hyogo): ¥390, (24mins, 33km)
  3. Kobe(hyogo) > Osaka: ¥390, (25mins, 33km)
  4. Osaka > Kyoto: ¥540, (29mins, 42km)
  5. Kyoto > Osaka: ¥540, (28mins, 42km)
  6. Osaka > Hakata: ¥14390, (174mins, 626km)

TOTAL: ¥32100 for 6 legs

As a 7 day rail pass is ¥28,300, you'll make a saving of ¥3800 over individual tickets - you'll also have a lot more flexibility to change your plans.

Hope this helps!
