Hi there,

For the route Tokyo ->Kyoto -> Osaka, it would not be worth it to use a JR Pass. Tokyo - Kyoto by Shinkansen is sort of expensive (around 14.000yen/one way). Kyoto to Osaka is just about 560yen using a local travel and together these trips would not be enough for a JR Pass to be cost-efficient.

That said, perhaps you might be going on day trips? Then it may be different.

Let me know if that helps :)
