Welcome to Kansai region where fascinating cities like Kyoto, Nara and Osaka are waiting for you! Nara, where I currently live, was the first permanent capital in Japan and it is now a well-known home to 1,200 deer roaming freely in the park. Living here is not only comfortable with tranquil atmosphere but convenient to visit Kyoto and Osaka, which are the top ranking destinations for tourists. I would like to introduce to you and share with you the fun of walking in such fantastic cities. Let’s go!
