Hi there,

The ICOCA card can be purchased at any JR station in Kansai. In Nagoya you can purchase a Manaca card, which works exactly the same and is usable in Osaka.

You could consider using local trains between Nagoya - Osaka or an express but since you won't have JR Pass at that time. This would allow you to make some savings but would increase travel time.

Enjoy Japan!
