If I plan to enter Tokyo by narita/ haneda, then return by Osaka/KIX, the only way is to book 2 one way tickets?

This is called open-jaw tickets. most airlines allow this.

No issue but big luggage compartments are very limited and usually there's some space towards the end of each car.

Shinkansen don't have storage compartment for luggage except those top compartment (Lift up). but that one cannot store large and heavy luggage.

another alternative is store behind the last row of seat. but that is assuming u reserve the last seat if got people sitting u can't use it.

What I meant is this http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2018.html (see last photo). You can also place it in front of you but there wont be much space for your legs.

if last row is taken then u can't store at last row technically or else the person sitting last row cannot recline properly.

That's why try to bring as light as possible. Japanese style, once u go there u will see their small luggage.

Is there any directs bullet train from Shin-Osaka Station back to Tokyo?
Is it worth to buy a single one-way ticket just to experience the bullet train?

If you are using non reserved seating, Just go find rebound train and hop on and go back your stop.

for JR Pass, find non Nozomi train.

Hey there, me and my friend were planning to go on our first 10-Days trip to Japan in April.
A couple of questions:

1. Is it worth getting 7 days JR pass? We are planning to travel to Osaka/Kyoto (and Nara, tbc), spending about 4-5 days there and back to Tokyo.
2. Is there such a thing like Shinkansen 1-Day pass? (Noob question) I asked because while I see that there is a 1-day Tokyo pass but it does not seems to cover the trip to Haneda Airport
3. I know that it is better to get reserved seating for Shinkansen. Can that be done online and what is the time period that I can book it for the next day ride? Eg. I will be taking the train on Monday, can I book it on Sunday?

All tokaido Shinkansen will pass those stations. Those are the most important train stops along that route

Shin Osaka - Kyoto - Nagoya - Tokyo.

If want to just experience, can buy short trip like Tokyo to Shinagawa. 6 mins ride and cost maybe $13 one way.

1. Cheapest Shinkansen Nozomi ticket round trip between Tokyo and Shin Osaka is 27240 Yen. Cheapest JR Ticket 7 days is 29110 Yen. So as long as you take round trip + some misc local train might be able to cover the cost of JR Pass.
But there are ways to save money on Shinkansen like taking certain plans like Kodama train which cost 20,600 Yen for round trip. So u need to make your calculation carefully.

2. http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2357.html

3. No difference between reserved or non reserved seating except during peak period where non reserved is full. Reservation window earliest 1 month before the date of the ride and latest is a few mins before departure.
