Hi there,

There are a couple of options. My recommended route is this one using the Shinkansen from Kanazawa to Tokyo and then to Odawara. (Odawara is the Shinkansen station for Hakone.

An alternative route is the use the Thunderbird express to Kyoto and use the Tokaido Shinkansen from there to Odawara.

Both routes are covered by the JR Pass.
