Hi there,

The Romance Car, is a train operated by Odakyu and not included in the JR Pass. You can use the Tokaido Shinkansen instead to travel to Hakone/Odawara.

2.) All these JR Lines are included, as well as the JR Bus in Kyoto. However note that most buses within Kyoto are run by a diffent company and not included. JR buses have a JR sign.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
