I'm going to be travelling from Kagoshima to Tokyo via Osaka with a stop-over in Osaka.

Which are the operator websites I will need to buy tickets with, and would this be the cheapest/best option or would it be better to get a rail-pass of some description?

    Just to avoid repeating what you already know, what have you found so far and why doesn't it work for you ?

    Rail is pretty much never the cheapest option for a single trip. Please clarify whether traveling by rail is a requirement for you, or you just say "rail" because it's the only thing you know.
