Hello! I'll be travelling to Japan from the U.S. in April. What is the official website in which to buy train tickets? For example, one trip I will be making is from Toyko to Gamagori.

First, you have not given your full itinerary - a JR Pass might or might not save you money. If you don't travel enough, a JR Pass can be a waste of money also.

You can buy the JR Pass (assuming you'd save with one) from nearly any big travel agency that sells tickets to Japan, or there are other online agencies that exclusively sell them. Currently you can buy one in Japan as well as part of a trial basis, but the cost would be about 15% higher.
The trial sale in Japan expires in March and there is no announcement that JR will continue it or make it permanent. I can't think of any legit reason why JR should not do so. But so far nobody knows.
