【About Nishinomiya City (兵庫県西宮市)】
Located between Osaka and Kobe, Nishinomiya is the perfect place to live if you want easy access to both cities. Getting to and from either is merely a matter of minutes. Nishinomiya is a great urban area itself though, with many things to see. There are multiple shrines, the Hyogo Performing Arts Center, and various universities for those considering post-graduate studies. For baseball fans, Nishinomiya is home to Kōshien Stadium, where the Hanshin Tigers play home games and where Japan's annual high school baseball championship is held. Lalaport Kōshien and the Hankyu Nishinomiya Gardens are also excellent shopping centers in the area. Multiple train lines run through the city and getting around by bus or on foot is easy; all schools are accessible by public transportation.
【About Kasai City (兵庫県加西市)】
Located in south-central Hyogo, the city of Kasai offers much for those seeking a quieter side of the Kansai region. Known for its beautiful flower gardens and idyllic scenery, it’s a pleasantly green city nestled among scenic mountains.
