Hi there!

Looking at your itinerary I think you made the right choice.

You can use your rail pass to travel from Osaka to NRT - here is a sample itinerary for you.

Lets take a look at the ticket prices for your trip to see if you're making the right choice with a 7 day pass (¥28,300):

  1. Tokyo > Odawara: ¥3840, (35mins, 83km)
  2. Odawara > Kyoto: ¥11950, (160mins, 429km)
  3. Kyoto > Osaka: ¥540, (28mins, 42km)
  4. Osaka > Narita airport terminal 1: ¥16650, (272mins, 635km)

TOTAL: ¥32980 for 4 legs

As you can see, with a 7 day pass you make a minimum saving of ¥4680 over standard tickets, and also have the flexibility to use all JR lines during this period if your plans change.

Hope this helps!
