Hi there,

Here is a little breakdown of ticket prices without the JR-Pass:
Osaka Nagoya 12,360
Osaka --> Kyoto 540
Kyoto --> Kanazawa ¥ 6,710
Kanazawa --> Kansai Airport ¥ 10,150

This adds up to 29,760 the 7 day JR-Pass is 28,300 so you could save 1,460 assuming you make the above itinerary in its 7 day validity period. Buying single tickets is only slightly more so you could go either way.

Hope this helps,
