Japan travel guide

Japan - Kansai (Chapter)

14th Edition Sep 2015

This is the Kansai chapter from Lonely Planet’s Japan guidebook.

If you had to choose only one region of Japan to explore, Kansai would be an easy choice. It’s the heart of Japan; nowhere else in the country can you find so much of historical and cultural interest in such a compact area. Osaka, the region’s hub and Japan’s third largest city, shows off Japanese urban life in all its mind-boggling intensity, while Nara, Japan’s first permanent capital, is thick with traditional sights.
