7 day JR & JR Tokyo Wide Pass

We will visit Japan for the second time next spring right after Golden week. We will stay 9 or 10 days with trip to Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Kanazawa & Shirakawago. Also with various day trip from Tokyo such as Ashikaga flower park, Hitachi seaside flower park and Shibazakura. I have few confirmations and thank in advance for your help:

1) I would like to confirm that 7 day JR & JR Tokyo Wide Pass will cover these destinations.

2) I am not to sure about Ashikaga

3) I will buy JR before entering Japan, and can buy JR Tokyo wide pass once I arrive Narita at JR office.

4) I assume that all seats are reserved, but I hope after Golden week, the travel will be lighter, are there trains without seat reservation? so we have flexible time while traveling, just seat where there is available.

Thanks

Your proposed destinations are covered by JR. There are unreserved seats on every Shinkansen.

IMO - you're doing a lot of moving around over a 10 day period.

Dave,

Thank you for your prompt rely!

My itinerary is subject to change based on suggestion. We spent 6 days in Kyoto and 4 days in Tokyo during our first visit at peak of cherry blossom. Also, already visited Hiroshima and Miyajima island, love this area and don't mind to return but if it is short of time, it can be removed from the list.

This time, we will more likely base in Osaka for few days and Shirakawago is on the list. Based on my reading, it can be easy reached from Kyoto thru Kanazawa, but again I am opened for other suggestions. We will spend more time in Tokyo with day trip for most part.
