Hi there,

That's a nice list you've got there. However I am not completely sure about your planning. Does every number stand for a day? Additionally where will you start your travels, from what airport?

From the amount of travel you plan to do, a 14 day JR Pass is certainly recommended.

Enjoy Japan!
