Hi there!

The JR Pass is great if you use it for multiple rides on the Shinkansen. I'd certainly recommend one if you made a return Osaka - Tokyo for instance but it would be better to just buy tickets as you travel because a JR Pass would not pay of at this point. I would recommend getting an IC card such as ICOCA.

Also your plan for Tokyo is great, I love the places which you plan to visit. You could add a visit to Tokyo Tower as well when you visit Odaiba, it's not too far away.

Hope this helps!
