While you need to change the trains at Shin-Osaka, you can buy a
single (more precisely "set of") ticket down to Hiroshima. As Scott
suggested, you enjoy some discount for express train surcharge. Also
it is generally expected that the station staffs at an international
airport may have better English skill than other stations.

More precisely, there are 6 JR comapnies operating passenger trains
now. They were "Japan National Railways", and divided and turned into
private companies in 1987. You can buy a ticket between a pair of any
of JR system stations. You need to pay "per-train" basis for limited
express surcharge and green-car (first class) surcharge, but the
station ticket office is able to sell at once.
