I am trying to purchase one way ticket from Osaka to Tokyo for 4 adults. Once we get to Tokyo, we will travel for two days then leave using plane.

I was wondering where I could purchase or reserve Shinkansen ticket online without purchasing JR pass since we will only need to use the train once.

Thank you for your help!!

Its not possible to buy tickets online unless you speak Japanese. The best way is simply to buy them at any station once you arrive in Japan.

If you do speak Japanese, then you can use this website to book them online:
