Saffronsatire, do i need to buy the JR pass for my itinerary (Tokyo & 1 night Hakone)? A bit confused by so many train system. If i do not need the JR pass, where should i buy the hakone free pass from? And If i want to take the romance train, i just buy from Shinjuku direct as u suggested?

Regarding the luggage situation, i should be bringing the big luggage (i think 30 inch) because i still need to continue my trip to US after that. The numbers in bracket above what am i supposed to click on? Or did i miss out something?
For Tokyo alone, don't need to buy JR pass. Either buy the suica (stored value card like our ezlink) and top up as and when or buy single trip tickets.

Yup, just buy the Hakone Free Pass from Shinjuku Station (Odakyu counter) and ride the train from Shinjuku directly to Hakone-Yumoto. Hakone Free Pass

Oopsie, forgot to append the link! Here it is: Hakone-Yumoto Station | Station and Port Information | HAKONENAVI.

Another suggestion is to shift Hakone/Fuji to Day 2-3 instead, so you can leave your luggage at your hotel after you check-out and bring a duffel bag for your Hakone/Fuji trip instead.

Since I see somebody post abt Hakone... but still confuse.

1. My fren like scenery, so which part of Hakone should we stay? (Juz one night stay)

2. Should we buy Hakone pass or juz buy "normal tkt" at Shinjuku?
1. Can try Lake Ashi. Prince is quite reasonably priced.

2. If you're planning to complete the round course, the Hakone Free Pass is cheaper.
