Hi Mariana and Diego,
The 14 Day JR Pass would work perfectly for your travel, by using it from day Day 6 - 19 you would cover all your pricey long distance travel with it, making the best use of your pass. You could buy a Suica + Narita Express package for travel to Tokyo and use the Suica card for travel around the metropolis for when you don't have your JR Pass active.
To maximize the use of your JR Pass, consider changing day 5 and 7 around. This way you can also use your JR Pass to travel to Kamakura and Yokohama.
