Kyoto to Kamakura

Could you please comment on the following itinerary, telling me if I have the itinerary correct, so I can use the JR Pass with out extra cost on my trip from Kyoto to Kamakura.
Thank you:

Kyoto - Shinkansen Hikari 514 to Odawara Station
LTD Express Odoriko 102 to Ofuna Station
JR Yokosuka line to Kamakura Station


Hi there!

Looks good, although the simpler trip is to go to Shiagawa via Hikari bullet and then direct to Kamakura via the Yokosuka line. I'd probably go for this option if you have luggage. Here's a sample itinerary for you.

Hope this helps!
