Whats the best Tickets to buy for Shinkansen

Hi fellow friends

I will be travelling to Japan in July this year, I would like to enquire and see what is the best way to buy Tickets for the Shinkansen and the usual local Railways in Japan.

My friends from Sydney Australia will be travelling to Hiroshima from Osaka or Kyoto, could you please let me know whats the best and cheapest method to purchase tickets to use while in Japan.

Can you purchase them Online or do you wait when you arrive in Japan to enquire from the Train Stations.

Really appreciate your suggestions and look forward to your comments,
