Hi there,

With the JR Pass you can use the Hikari and Kodama Shinkansen between Tokyo and Osaka. The Hikari is the fastest of the two, so take that one :)

Seat reservations are not required but I would recommend doing so, as it will secure seating and saves you time on the train platform.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

ok, but in general, because we want to go to kyushu as well, no nozomi and mizuho, but the other like the hayabusa, azama, and more there arent any problem?

Certainly!

You can use the Hikari, Kodama, Sakura and Tsubame Shinkansen. In addition all trains in Tohoku are covered.
