Hi, I will be purchasing JR Kansai Hiroshima pass and plan to travel to Hiroshima from Kyoto. Will it be less crowded to take first train for JR? Thanks!

Generally speaking, yes.
According to Hyperdia:
you can leave Kyoto at 6:08 AM to catch the bullet train from Shin-Osaka, or get the first bullet train from Kyoto at 6:56 AM. If you are worried about the New Year's crowds, the earlier the better.

Actually, you can't take the bullet train from Kyoto with the pass. You'd have to pay for that section.
