Our History

“Kansai chan” which was first published in 2017, is a free, girly-themed travel magazine mainly targeted to women who visit Japan. The magazines were mainly handed out at the Kansai Tourist Information Centers with the aim to elevate the traveler’s experience by providing travel information about the Kansai region with a familiar and friendly touch.

Later, “Kansai chan Guide” travel blog was launched in October 2020 by JTB Global Marketing & Travel Inc. (Western Japan Inbound Department) to introduce the beauty of the Kansai Region to the people of the world.

The website does not only provide information for travelling but introduces the charms of Japanese culture for readers to enjoy as well.

Our Mission

Kansai chan Guide aims to make its readers feel friendly and familiar while exploring the wonders of the Kansai Region through “Japanese Kawaii” culture.

The magazine version of “Kansai chan” is still handed out at the Kansai Tourist Information Centers.
