Hi there,

I think you are travelling to Tokyo, Kanazawa, Osaka and back to Tokyo. My advise here would be to use a 7 day JR Pass for travel from day 3-9, this way you could get the best possible savings.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps,
