Advice requested re Travelling by Rail Pass in Japan

Jump to last reply

I am flying to Japan Narita Airport in January 2013 and have the following itinerary arranged
Day 1 Arrive at Narita Airport and get trains to HaKone for 1 night
Day 2 Leave Hakone to go to Takayama for 2 nights
Day 4 Depart Takayama to go to Kyoto for 3 nights (Day trip from Kyoto to Nara)
Day 7 Depart Kyoto to go to Hiroshima for 2 nights
Day 9 Depart Hiroshima to return to Narita Airport

I am unsure what rail passes to buy as the 7day JR pass would be too short for the duration of the whole holiday and I know I will need it for the last leg of the holiday. .Also I want to be able to travel on the bullet trans where possible especially on the longer journeys.
Can anyone advise whether there is another rail pass I can buy which would cover the first 3 days and would include travel from Narita Airport to Hakone and to Takayama?Can this type of ticket also be pre ordered in the same way as the 7 day JR pass
Any advice that would help keep the costs down would be much appreciated as this is my first trip to Japan. Thank you
Jo
