Hello there,

Welcome to the forum!

I checked your route to see what the best option would be and I recommend a 7 day (nation wide) JR Pass. You can use it for travel to and within Tokyo, part of the way to Fuji, Disneyland/sea, Galayuzawa and to Kyoto. The 7 day JR Pass is about the price of a return ticket Tokyo - Gala Yuzawa and to Kyoto. So any additional travel is basically what you save.

To travel from Tokyo to Kyoto, simply take a bullet train directly from Tokyo to Kyoto station.

Hope this helps,
