Is there only option to book online for JR pass before coming to Jp?
I just found out about this information, but I am already here in tokyo.
My plan: Tokyo- Osaka-nara-Nagoya

Hi there,

Unfortunately the pass can only be bought outside of Japan. You could ask someone to buy the pass for you and then ship it to Japan.

However for your planned route it is actually a little cheaper to just buy normal tickets, so no need to worry :)
