Hello there,

In terms of convenience, I think the 7 day JR Pass is the better option. You could use it from day 3-9 to make the best savings. Going to Gala Yuzawa (14580yen return to Tokyo) and from Tokyo - Kyoto ¥ 13,800. The JR Pass can also be used for local travel within Tokyo and Osaka on the local JR lines, these can be used of see most of both cities. Including Ginza, Ropponggi, Shibuya. The metro/subway is not covered by any JR Pass.

You will also only require one ticket for all travel making it easy to get around.

Hope this helps,
