Hi there,

You could start in Osaka or Tokyo, it does not make a lot of difference. Visiting Hakone will also be easy, as it has a Shinkansen station directly on the route between Osaka and Tokyo. The Shinkansen station for Hakone is called Odawara.

You can use the Hikari Shinkansen to travel between Osaka, Hakone and Tokyo. Generally there is at least a train service every 30 minutes.

Hope this helps,
