Should I get one? + Advice

Hello forum!

I'm traveling to Japan from July 13 to August 2, and plan to go around the West of the country. Here's my rough itinerary : (I'm very open to ideas and suggestions to great places). Would a 7 day pass or 14 day one be good for me? I'd like to save money but at the same time if the 14 day gives me more flexibility, then I'd be tempted.

Cheers.
