Kansai Tours

The Kansai Region used to be the political center of Japan, but now it is a place where you can see many historical sites that were carefully preserved. You can see original castles like Himeji and Hikone, religious sites in Ise, Koyasan, and Kumano, historical structures in Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka, etc.

Kansai is the old political center of Japan, containing many of the oldest capitals in the country such as Nara and Kyoto. Kansai is also very diverse with many different locations known for a wide variety of sites. Nagashima Onsen has many indoor and outdoor baths. Iga Ueno and Koka are known for their ninja history. Ise Shrines are the most sacred Shinto shrines in Japan. Hikone Castle, an original castle, is designated a national treasure. Kyoto is an important cultural and traditional center in Japan. Uji is the birthplace of matcha, powdered green tea, which is used in tea ceremonies. Nara has over 1000 free roaming deer around Todaiji Temple. Mount Yoshino has over 30,000 cherry blossoms planted around its slopes. Osaka has hearty street food, modern architecture, and historical landmarks. Koyasan is the best place to experience the monk’s lifestyle. Kumano Sanzan pilgrimage route is designated a UNESCO world heritage site. Nanki Shirahama has various entertainment facilities.
