Overview of your Osaka tour:

If you stay at your hotel in Osaka or on board in Osaka harbor with more than 8 hours free, especially with your family, do not miss the chance to visit Nara. Entire Nara city is a kind of historical and natural museum established 1250 years ago. There, Great Buddha will welcome you with its archaic smile. Kasuga Shinto shrine will make you feel amazed with thousands of stone lanterns along the pilgrimage corridor. You may be surprised to see a herd of wild deer crossing the city street without being hunt. You have a chance to see the remains of the ancient capital, Heijo palace, with the window view. For lunch, you can enjoy local cuisine at my favorite restaurants, or picnic lunch at Nara park with wild deer roaming. For shopping or exploring local culture, you can stroll along the old town, Naramachi. FYI, deer is friendly for most of the time. You can feed them a deer food available there by hand. They even return their bows to you if you feed them in the manner that I can instruct you there.
