Message

Since thanks to kind local people, I could have great time in Hamburg, I decided to show my gratitude to foreign visitors to Japan. Many people in Kansai region including Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Kobe are very funny and kind. I’ m sure that you can enjoy the unique nature of the locality as well as sightseeing in Kansai.
