Hi Elly,

For this trip I would use normal tickets for travel around Japan. This because the price of normal tickets will be below the price of a 7 day JR Pass. A Japan Rail Pass generally pays of if you make a return Kansai (Kyoto or Osaka) to Tokyo and you'll only travel one way.

The rest of your itinerary looks good, you may also find this article about visiting Fuji useful:

Hope this helps,
Daniel
