Does the Kagoshima shinkansen have WiFi or power outlets? Any cost for WiFi?

no wifi. Power outlets maybe, depends on the train car and location of your seats, and I have used them.

Wifi is only available to certain provider users on Tokaido Shinkansen. Power outlet is available on window-side if you take the Mizuho/Sakura train (N700 series train; not Tsubame).

Some older train cars have the power outlets at both ends of each car, total of 8/10 outlets per car. I believe the Tsubame falls under this category.

We rented a mobile LTE device for about $5/day. It was worth every penny as we could use the Internet from all of our devices. From Kagoshima to Osaka, there are numerous tunnels which block the signal. The shinkansen is fast so time between tunnels is brief. This resulted in not having Internet except when stopping near stations.
