JR Pass and Itenerary

Hi I am travelling with family and friends for an 8 day vacation in Tokyo and Osaka from Jan 30 to Feb 06, 2017. We just purchased our JR pass. We are staying in Tokyo for 3 days and Osaka for 4 days. My questions are from Tokyo we would like to go to Gala Yuzawa snow resort. Can we use our JR pass in going there and which station should be go? And are there also trains that accept the JR pass aside from the bullet trains? I understand that in travelling to osaka from tokyo we are going to use the JR pass thru skinkansen bullet train thru Tokyo Station. Can we also use the pass in going to kyoto and narra? Thank you very much for taking time in reading my queries....

    Info on Yuzawa is here:
    You can use the pass on bullet trains (except the fastest - the Nozomi and Mizuho), limited express as well as express and local trains. You can easily use the pass going between Kyoto and Osaka/Nara on JR - but there are several other non-JR rail lines where you can't.
    You can see regular fares, routes and schedules on Hyperdia.
    Under "More Options", be sure to uncheck the Nozomi box since you can't ride that train using the pass.
