Hi Renata,

You can find time tables via www.hyperdia.com here you can find any train/route.

I recommend using a JR Pass if you make a return trip to Tokyo after Osaka, otherwise buying normal tickets would be the better option. The JR Pass is valid on all JR lines nation wide but not transport that is run by other companies, such as the metro.

Hope this helps,
