Shinkansen Fare from Tokyo to Osaka

Can anyone tell me how much is the Shinkansen tickets from Tokyo to Osaka (via Hikari) for one way? I am trying to compare to see if it is more worth it to buy a Japan Rail Pass.

If you do a Tokyo-Osaka roundtrip within 7 days, then you are almost at breakeven. Throw in a few more short to medium rides and you will start saving money.
