Shimonoseki to Hiroshima by train

We will arrive in Shimonoseki by ferry (from China). From there we will travel by train to Hiroshima. Is there any need for us to book our train tickets in advance (for travel on a weekend in mid April) or can we buy them on the spot?

No, just get them when you are there.

Note -for your travel plans probably best if you go to SHIN-SHIMONOSEKI station...from there you can take a Shinkansen to Hiroshima--generally those will be Kodama trains, one per hour and there will be a few stops en route as those are the most "local" of the Shikansens. Sometimes they are so lightly used in that area I have been the only person in the entire rail car.

There are other ways to get there that involve some back tracking to Kokura, but this would be easiest, particularly if you have luggage.
