Brian,

Since the Nozomi runs every 20 mins and there are slower (somewhat) 
trains in between, you should not have any problems just showing up
and saying "tsugi nozomi" which means next Nozomi -- that's probably
not good Japanese, but it will be understood.

My personal preference is to get the ticket a couple of days in 
advance, using Hyperdia to plan my route. This means you can go
straight to the platform and not have to schlep luggage into the
ticket office.

As far as I know, the station (or any JR station with a ticket office)
is the only place to get tickets.

Ole
