we are considering for our first trip to japan going to tokyo for 4-5 days then going to hakone overnight then from hakone going to kyoto for 2-3 days before we have to go back to tokyo to depart.

is this reasonable? or should we skip one section of our trip?? (ie just do tokyo and kyoto or just do tokyo and hakone?)

can we leave kyoto in the morning and still get to the airport in tokyo in time for an evening departure??

can we use the JR east rail pass for this trip?

I think this is feasible, but I would think about more time in Kyoto and less in Tokyo. Think about taking 1 or 2 of your Tokyo days and adding them to Kyoto instead.

Yes, it's reasonable.
Yes, you can make it from Kyoto to Narita in time for your flight, probably.
No, you cannot use the JR East Pass for Kyoto.

Time for you to go and buy the Fodor's book on Japan, or contact the JNTO, or get a travel agent.
