Hello there,

I would suggest a 14 day JR Pass for your itinerary as it would nicely cover your whole itinerary.
The JR Pass can be used for most if your itinerary and only around Fuji could it be that you'd have to use additional transport (depending on where exactly you plan to visit).

Let me know if you have any question(s)!
