Hello there,

I've pinned your itinerary to a map here. Have a look at it and you can see the Tokyo, Kyoto and Hakone (Odawara station) are all on the Shinkansen (the blue line). So it will be very easy to travel around.

Depending on the side trips you make, consider using a 7 day JR Pass. This covers all the Shinkansen above and many many more local trains. Personally I would recommend a day trip from Kyoto to Hiroshima.

Hope this helps!
