Kansai to osaka "bullet train"

Sorry for being naieve, we are arriving at 830am in Osaka and have to take the train down to Hiroshima.. Just wanted to know the quickest/best way to that train station to catch the bullet train..

And should we pre-book the train or just buy when we get there? Thanks everyone!

As noted above, take the Haruka to Shin-Osaka then transfer to the Shinkansen. If you're coming back to Osaka in 4 days, buy the JR West Sanyo Area Pass. You can book a seat on the Shinkansen at JR KIX Station:
