Hi there,

Yes a 14 day JR Pass will be worth buying. Traveling from Tokyo - Himeji - Hiroshima - Kyoto - Narita Airport pays for more than the pass itself and you can make amazing savings with all the additional travel added in.

I love the idea of staying at Miyajima, you can walk the island after dark and see the light up of the Tori gate and the coastline of the mainland. You can also use the JR Pass for the ferry to Miyajima, which is a nice bonus.

Hope this helps,
