timetable/schedule of hikari bullet train-Japan

HI! does anyone know what time the bullet train operates in Japan, esp. the hikari shinkanzen (one where we can use the japan rail pass)? From Osaka to Tokyo and vice versa. Is it still open at night around 9-10pm to leave from osaka to tokyo? thanks!

You can check schedules on http://www.hyperdia.com

UNCHECK: NOZOMI (under search details) and you will get Hikari Results.

The last Hikari appears to leave ShinOsaka at 8:33pm.

21:00 is too late. The last Hikari already leaves by then.
