2 weeks in Japan, 7 or 14 day Japan Rail Pass

Similar to a couple of questions asked already but I am still little unsure if I should buy 7 or 14 day Japan Rail Pass in October. I have 5 days in Tokyo and want to use the train/metro a lot... Then 9 days on Osaka. From there plan to take day trips to Kyoto, Kobe and Hiroshima if possible. So, should I get 7 day pass and use something like a pasmo card in Tokyo?

Important factor: entry and departure airports.

Always wise to get an IC travel card like SUICA or PASMO regardless of JR Pass or no.

Didn't answer question: what are your entry and departure airports? Different calculus if you fly into a Tokyo airport and out of Kansai International Airport.
