Hi there,

You could look at either a 7 day or 14 day JR Pass with travel to Hiroshima. I think the best option would be to use a 7 day JR Pass and see if you can make the trip to Hiroshima and back to Tokyo within 7 days. This would be the most economic option. Travel cost around Tokyo does not cost that much and it is fine to buy normal tickets or day tickets.

A Hakone Free Pass is also worth considering if you plan on exploring the Hakone region. You could also start with normal tickets, then the Hakone Pass followed by a 7 day JR Pass.

The JR Pass does cover travel to and from the Airport and Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
