I'm intending to fly in and out of Japan, and looking for budget flight recommendations to HK and back. Can anyone offer suggestions, also for different itinerary if it would be cheaper. Thanks.

1"in the zone"??? It's almost four hours from Osaka to Hong Kong...
Your best bet is a stopover in HKG during the intercontinental flight. Use any search engine's "multi city" option.

4Budget options in and out of Japan are limited, because Japanese aviation policy has not facilitated new entrants. Fares to Japan have been relatively high.
That is beginning to change......#3 has given you a couple of budget recommendations. Peach is, I believe, planning to start flights to HK. Cebu Pacific offers connecting budget flights from Osaka to HK via the Philippines.
However as you may be coming from Europe, #1 has pointed you to a very good solution. Check out flying Europe/Japan/HK, and categorize the Japan part (even if it's the longest part of the trip) as the "stopover" on the way to HK. This is sometimes a good way to get lower fares for the whole package, than if you book tickets separately.
