Hello Evy,

The JR Pass works best on longer distances, in your itinerary this is limited for Tokyo - Osaka and the cost of normal tickets is lower than the cost of a JR Pass. So I would suggest buying normal tickets here.

A 7 day JR Pass would be useful if used for a return Tokyo - Osaka or Tokyo - Kyoto.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
