Contrary to popular belief Hong Kong its not completely urban. There are swaths of undeveloped land in the new territories. Hopefully it status that way.

I would agree that Hong Kong is filled with many islands, and not every inch is entirely urban. However, what is built up, is very urban. So, based on that technically, it would appear that Tokyo would win. But, in general, Hong Kong's urban areas are very urban as well.

What is the true motive of the question? I wonder.

Tokyo. 23 cities and another 30 or so to the west (Tama). Then another 100 or so cities in the 6 surrounding prefectures, including Yokahama and Kawasaki - usually this is counted as one mega city - the national capital region. 43 million people one hour or so by train in any direction. Biggest city in the world.

Tokyo and Hong Kong are mega-cities in Asia and both very urban. I think you need to be more specific about the context of your question. What are you looking for exactly?

Hong Kong is more urban but it's a very small city.

True! And being on trains in Tokyo, it just takes forever to get from one side of the metro to the other....i.e. Saitama to Yokhoma, for example.
