Great, here's your itinerary breakdown for you:

  1. Narita airport terminal 1 > Tokyo: ¥3,140 (62mins, 79km)
  2. Tokyo > Nikko: ¥5,630 (121mins, 150km)
  3. Nikko > Tokyo: ¥5,630 (117mins, 150km)
  4. Tokyo > Otsuki: ¥2,860 (85mins, 87km)
  5. Otsuki > Tokyo: ¥2,860 (76mins, 87km)
  6. Tokyo > Osaka: ¥13,950 (194mins, 556km)
  7. Osaka > Nara: ¥780 (59mins, 48km)
  8. Nara > Osaka: ¥780 (55mins, 48km)
  9. Osaka > Hiroshima: ¥10,150 (104mins, 345km)
  10. Hiroshima > Osaka: ¥10,820 (109mins, 345km)
  11. Osaka > Kyoto: ¥540 (29mins, 42km)
  12. Kyoto > Osaka: ¥540 (28mins, 42km)
  13. Osaka > Narita airport terminal 1: ¥16,250 (272mins, 635km)

JR ticket cost: ¥73,930 for 13 legs

As you can see you'll make excellent savings with a 14 day JR Pass, in addition any further JR travel will be free (for example you can make good use of the JR Pass around Tokyo - see this map of JR lines in Tokyo for more)

Please note that I have assumed you'll be visiting Kawaguchiko for Mt. Fuji. For Kawaguchiko the JR Pass will take you as far as Otsuki. From here you'll need to use the non-JR Fujikyu lines up to Kawaguchiko itself. Also, for Koyasan you'll need to use the non-JR Nankai rail from Osaka Namba station. Here's more on how to get to Koyasan by rail.

Hope this helps!
