No need to go back to Tokyo to go to Hong Kong. Loads of flights from Osaka. You might also want to check out the Mt Fuji area near Tokyo. Lots to see and do in both Kyoto and Tokyo.

Second Mt Fuji

Check out Midori sushi in Tokyo.

Check out Hakone area for hot spring

I would highly discourage you from trying to do both japan and HK within 2 weeks. You can easily pick 3 cities in japan and get lost for much longer than 2 weeks..

While there’s a lot to do in Japan (I’ve probably gone 10 times and keep discovering new things and new places), Kyoto, Tokyo, and Hong Kong are definitely possible in two weeks. Two to three days is enough for Hong Kong (and I lived there for a few years).
