Osaka - Osaka Castle, Shinsaibashi, Shitennoji, Osaka Tower, Umeda, USJ, American Village

Kyoto - Karasumachi, Kinkakuji, Kiyomizu Temple, Nanzen Temple, Gion area, Eastern Mountain area. Inari Fukusimi Temple. Heian Jingu

Since you are there, you might as well spend a day and visit Kobe as well. All 3 cities are so close to each other.

Nara - Todaiji and the surrounding areas. Some of the other temples are so far off that you better make your choice carefully.

Kobe - Sannomiya, Harbourfront area, Kobe Tower, if got time, Rokko Mt to see the niteview.

Osaka, TMC already covered most, include Nara.

Kiyomizu's a must for Kyoto, and the tea garden.

Oops.. Planning to stay there for only 4-5 days....
Osaka, try SunLife hotel, it's very cosy, very comfortable. Ask TMC, he's seen the room too.

As for Kyoto, I stayed with Chisun Hotel. Cosy spacious and nice.

for kyoto, if you don't mind having shared bathrooms, Sanki Inn is actually very comfortable (6 tatami room, very spacious) and extremely cheap http://www.kyoto-ap.ne.jp/sanki/index-e.html this family turned their 2 storey home into an inn, the host is very friendly. it's located in an old residential section, very unique and cosy environment, may not be that easy to find for first timers though.
