Hi there,

A 7 day JR Pass is definitely the best option for Tokyo - Kyoto - Nara - Hiroshima - Kyoto - Tokyo. This so much travel, that even a 14 day JR Pass would help you make savings. You could however just buy a 7 day JR Pass and cover this part with it. It also depends a little on how flexible you will want to be in Tokyo. Having a JR Pass will make it very easy to make day trips anywhere, without additional cost.

Hope this helps,
