You more or less have to use the Hakone 2 Day Pass. It is a private line anyway. So JR Pass or not it does nothing for you

the parts in Tokyo till you go back will be a bit complicated.

17k for a 5 day (within 14 days) pass might be too much. Right now you are clocking in under 12k

if you want to make it worth, you need to do another shinkansen trip and that might just clock in enough for the pass but might not make it worth it
Thanks - if i plan to rent a car when we reach Hakone to go around is it still worth getting the Hakone Pass?

How did you arrive at 12k? Will the shinkansen to Kuruizawa ski resort be included in the JR pass to make it worthwhile?

Thanks again.
