Hello there,

You will be traveling a good amount, in a period that is longer than 7 days. My advice, therefore, would be to use a 14 day JR Pass. You will make good savings compared to buying normal rail tickets and the JR Pass would cover all your travel between the above placed.

You still may need local travel for Hakone and local transport in cities. For Hakone a Hakone Free Pass can be good.

Hope this helps,
