Japan - Kansai (Chapter)
This is the Kansai chapter from Lonely Planet's Japan guidebook.
Kansai is the heart of Japan. Nowhere else in the country can you find so much of historical and cultural interest in such a compact area. Indeed, if you had to choose only one region of Japan to explore, Kansai would be the easy choice.
