People of Kansai
Tourism would not be the same without encounters between people.
People from Kansai are said to be very friendly.
Kyoto is Kyoto, Osaka is Osaka, Kobe is Kobe... Despite regional differences, people in Kansai are often said to be more open than in other parts of Japan.
One of the reasons for this is perhaps because these areas have flourished as cities since ancient times, growing into places visited by many people who have actively interacted with one another. Here, tourists are not treated merely as guests but more like long-term friends or family. It is this “Kansai hospitality” that will make your trip even more memorable.
