Hi there!

All your travel is not so far apart and travel within the Kansai Area (where Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Himeji are located) is not that expansive. So the JR Pass may not be that helpful for you.

What you could look into is the Kansai Area Pass this would certainly help save money with your travel to Himeji and you can add additional days (up to 4) as you see fit.

Have a great time in Japan!
