Should I get a Japan Rail Pass?

Hello!
I'm planning a trip to Japan and I'm not sure which version of the Japan Rail Pass should I get (14 days, 21 days, none?). I'm planning on doing the following:

Day 1: Narita -> Tokio
Day 2-5: Tokio
Day 6: Tokyo -> Nikko -> Tokyo
Day 7: Tokio -> Kamakura -> Tokyo
Day 8: Tokyo -> Kawaguchiko -> Tokio
Day 9: Tokio -> Nagoya -> Kyoto
Day 10-11: Kyoto
Day 12: Kyoto -> Nara -> Kyoto
Day 13: Kyoto -> Hiroshima -> Miyajima
Day 14: Miyajima -> Osaka
Day 15: Osaka
Day 16: Osaka -> Mount Koya -> Osaka
Day 17: Osaka -> Tokio
Day 18: Tokio -> Narita

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

HI there,

Assuming that you would use the JR Pass from day 5-1, you could cover the following with the JR Pass.

Tokyo - Nikko (return) ¥ 10,860
Tokyo - Kamakura (return) ¥ 1,780
Tokyo -> Kawaguchiko (return) ¥ 5,720 in savings, a separate fare of 1,110yen each way is required because some part is traveled on a private railway.
Tokyo - Kyoto (Inc Nagoya stop) ¥ 13,220
Kyoto - Nara (return) ¥ 1,380
Kyoto - Hiroshima ¥ 10,790
Hiroshima - Miyajima (return) ¥ 1,140
Hiroshima - Osaka ¥ 10,520
Osaka - Tokyo ¥ 13,750
Tokyo - Narita Airport ¥ 2,740

For a total of ¥ 71,900 or ¥ 26,800 in savings as the 14 day JR Pass is 45,100. So I would definitely recommend a JR Pass!

I hope this helps!
