Hi there,

Definitely the 14 day JR Pass! You'll be traveling a good amount all together and you'll make good savings using the JR Pass. Not only that but it will also cover rail travel between all of the above places.

Also nice to know if that the JR Pass covers the Hiroshima sightseeing bus and ferry to Miyajima island.

Hope this helps,
