1. Re: Places to visit in japan

You should stay several days in Tokyo before you activate your JR Pass and you should also stay several days in Kyoto, therefore you don't need the 14 day JR Pass, but the 7 day JR Pass is sufficient to go to Tokyo, Kyoto/Nara, Hiroshima/Miyajima, and Mt. Fuji. Here is a detailed 12 day itinerary for Tokyo, Kyoto with a half day trip to Nara and a day trip to Osaka, Hiroshima/Miyajima, and Mt. Fuji (Hakone or Kawaguchiko) using the 7 day JR Pass for your reference.

Maybe you want to do a little research, e.g. at www.japan-guide.com or buy the lonely planet discover japan (not the big text-rich book, the one with a lot of pictures). We do not really know your preferences, and there is really so much to see there...

Honestly speaking you need to research Japan. Look at the Japan Guide as mentioned above, and also get click on "things to do" for each of the areas you plan to visit.

My recommendations would include Tokyo, Kawaguchiko (or Hakone), Osaka and Kyoto (and Nara).
