Two Week Stay in Japan

I will be traveling with a friend to Japan in July for two weeks! We are planning on getting a 7 day JR Pass because we will be staying in or around Tokyo for the first week of the trip, while the second week of the trip will take us south to several other cities. My question is... How would I go about obtaining and activating my JR Pass after already being in Tokyo for a week? Will I have to travel back to Narita Airport before the second week of the trip to do this or is there another way?

Thank you,

So, I am able to exchange the voucher that is delivered to me in the US to any of the listed stations in Tokyo? I will not have to do anything when arriving at the airport in Narita? Sorry- I just want to make sure I don't mess anything up :)

Thank you!
