Boruto Launches Hidden Gems of Kansai Promotion
Kansai is the western region of Japan, centering around the ancient captials of Kyoto and Nara. Being Japan’s “second region” after Tokyo, it has long been famous for its food, and many well-known Japanese dishes come from this area. Traditionally, Kansai food is based around dishes made with high-quality, flavourful dashi stock and light soy sauce. The people of Osaka, a major part of Kansai, are enthusiastic about their local food. They are so enthusiastic that it is often joked about how Oasakans will spend all their money indulging on food until they go bankrupt. Sake is another specialty of the region, the areas of Nada-Gogo and Fushimi produce 45% of all sake in Japan.
