Hi there,

Let's have a look at ticket prices and find out.

Shizuoka - Hamamatsucho ¥ 6,350
Hamamatsucho - Tokyo ¥ 160
Tokyo - Odawara (for Hakone) ¥ 3,740
Odawara - Niigata ¥ 10,570

For a total ¥ 20,820, the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 29,110. With this in mind, I would advise buying normal tickets for your travel.

Hope this helps!
