Please advise on detailed itinerary

Asked by Jamy Ling · 5 months ago

Family of 2 adults and 2 daughters (aged 11 and 8 years) visiting for first time:

My itinerary is:

8 June: Narita Airport to apartment in Shinjuku-ku Takadanobaba

9 June: Moomin Park

10 June: Ueno Zoo or Zoo-Asia

11 June: National Museum of Nature & Science, Iris Garden, Snoopy Museum and Mori-Art (Roppongi)

12 June: Asukayama Park, Fire Museum, 

13 June: Tokyo Dome

14-15 June: Odawara, Hakone

16-18 June: Osaka with Kyoto as day trip

19-20 June: Disney Sea

21 June: Travel to Narita for flight home

Questions:

I have bought the 7 day JR pass and plan to activate it on  12 June. (Prefer to visit Moomin and Zoo-asia) on weekends because my spouse is working on 11-13 June. I understand that JR rail pass covers Yamamote Line in Tokyo. Will it be easy for me to get to all the places above using the Yamamote line? Can you help me change the locations so that it makes more sense geographically and I'm not criss-crossing?

Going outside Tokyo to Hakone, Kyoto and Osaka, I assume that the Shinkansen stops only at certain stations. How do I check so that I can book hotels that are near the Shinkansen line?

If I already have bought the JR pass, should I still get the Hakone Rail Pass?
