Hi there,

I checked your itinerary but don't think that a JR Kanto pass would offer good value for you. This because both Izu and Hakone are outside of the Kanto Pass range and are there trips that are most expanvice in terms of ticket prices.

You could consider a Hakone Free Pass, which is good for travel within Hakone.

Hope this helps,
