Japan Itinerary suggestion.

Hi, me & my friend are thinking about taking a short trip to Japan in mid-march/early april. We've made up a quick Itinerary and would like some feedback. Don't reallt know that much about the different cities and I'm aware that we don't have that much time but we would so if any of them are not that interesting tell me=) Then I wonder if it's profitable for us to buy a Railway pass and if so for 7 or 14 Days? Well, here it is in short terms:

Day 1

We arrive late in the evening after 30 hours traveling and go straight to bed.

Day 2

Spend in Tokyo

Day 3

Spend in Tokyo

Day 4

Spend in Tokyo

Day 5

Train from Tokyo early to Kyoto where we spend the rest of the day

Day 6

Train from Kyoto to Osaka and further down to Kumano Kodo where we will start some kind of hike.

Day 7

Hike KK

Day 8

Hike KK

Day 9

Train to Osaka and spend rest of the day there.

Day 10

Train to Himeji, See Himeji Castle & Takeda Castle Ruins (doable in 1 day?)

Day 11

Osaka - Tokyo where we spend our last day Before going home.

Day 12

There is a lot to see in Kyoto, so you could take one day off Tokyo and add that to Kyoto.
