Kansai

The Kansai Region (in Kanji: 関西地方, Kansai-chihō) or the Kinki region (近畿地方, Kinki-chihō) lies in the southern-central region of Japan's main island Honshū. The region includes the prefectures of Nara, Wakayama, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyōgo, and Shiga. The urban region of Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto (Keihanshin region) is the second most populated in Japan after the Greater Tokyo Area. The weather is mild, though the Japan Sea coast is subject to heavy snowfall in winter. Along with a varied topography that includes everything from open plains to mountain peaks, Kansai enjoys four distinctive seasons, each of which reflect the rich natural beauty of Japan. For well over 1,000 years, Kansai has been the political, economic, and cultural center of Japan, prospering around the ancient capitals of Osaka, Nara, and Kyoto.


Approximately 60 percent of Japan's national treasures can be found in Kansai and five of Japan's thirteen World Heritage Sites: Hōryū-ji, Himeji Castle, Kiyomizu-dera, Tōdai-ji, and Mount Koya, have received the UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage designation. The region is also well known as the birthplace of Japan's three main traditional performing arts: noh, bunraku, and kabuki, which in turn have been recognized by UNESCO as Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. In addition, Japan's representative traditional arts chanoyu (tea ceremony) and ikebana (flower arrangement) have their origins in Kansai.
