A UP forum on Japan isn't complete if it doesn't include a thread on Kansai. 18 million people, $341 billion GDP, a longer and richer history than Tokyo, and a unique culture all its own. Definitely one of my favorite places in the world.

Thanks for tall the pictures of the Abenobashi Tower. I really like that design. How's construction coming along? Granted it's just been a few months since you posted some pictures of the construction.
