Hi there,

I am more than happy to help you find the best option(s) for your itinerary.

Looking over your itinerary, I would certainly recommend a 14 day JR Pass. There's a lot of travel here and you can make outstanding savings compared to using normal tickets. I would either start using the JR Pass when you travel to Hakone or when you travel from Hakone to Kyoto.

The rest looks like an amazing trip!

Hope this helps,
