Assuming you are a JR Pass holdert and take at least 5hrs doing (parts of) Osaka, you'll have to leave Hiroshima in somewhat early morning hours.

1)Outward-bound Hikari to Shin-Osaka:

(A)0746(Hiroshima)→0920(Shin-Osaka), 94min, no transfer

(B)0845(ditto)→1020(ditto), 95min, no transfer

2)Inward-bound Hikari to Hiroshima

(A)1559(Shin-Osaka)→1732(Hiroshima)

As for travelers’spots in Osaka, visit:

www.tourism.city.osaka.jp/en/model/index.html

See pictures of Osaka.

1)Osaka Castle:

Note: If you are into culture / history, you can’t expect much of it when inside. The castle is beautiful when seen from outside, though. Himeji’s is by far the superior.

2)Shitenoji Temple:

3)Shinsaibashi / Dotombori

4)Umeda

5)Kaiyukan Aquarium

My suggestion is picking out just two from the above to tour them.

Enjoy your trip.
