Is the above itinerary ok? thanks alot for any help given.
Is this your first trip to JP with the kids? At a glance, if your main intention is to play and see snow, then I suppose it might work for you but if it's your first time there, you are missing out quite a lot.

You can try Gala Yuzawa for a more convenient snow resort experience as the train stations stops by the resort itself. For this you can get the Tokyo Wide Pass which is slightly cheaper for a return trip via shinkansen.
