Need some advise.

I'll be flying into KIX during CNY week and will staying in Osaka 1 night then heading to Hiroshima for 3 nights then to Kyoto 3 nights then back to Osaka 1 night.

Any special tickets I should buy for the shinkansen like JR Pass or some special pass for the trip between Osaka - Hiroshima - Kyoto - Osaka? Or I just go and buy regular shinkansen ticket. I checked hyperdia and SHIN-OSAKA to HIROSHIMA one way is about JPY10.4k

I do have an ICOCA IC Card as well. I'm familiar with Osaka but not Hiroshima/Kyoto or Shinkansen (never rode it before). Is it similar to the China High Speed Rail?

unfortunately u are too early for the new JR Kansai Hiroshima pass which starts in 1 March 2015:
JR West Rail Pass - Kansai Hiroshima Area Pass

the old JR West Sanyo area pass is still available till 28 Feb 2015. more expensive though
JR West Rail Pass - Sanyo Area
