NEW! Kansai Scene Forum

In response to the growing number of 'chat' type ads appearing in the classifieds, Kansai Scene is pleased to announce that its new forum/bbs/community board is now up and running!
Simply use the FORUM link above to access this new feature of the KS website and register as a new user to begin your new forum life!

Whether you need inside Kansai information or simply want to meet new friends ム whatever you have to say, you can be sure someone will listen!

Kansai Scene back online!

Apologies to all that may have visited the KS site recently and been disappointed to find its content stuck in a temporary time warp. Apologies too to all our readers who tried to place classified ads during the beginning of August as we were maintaining the scripts. Rest assured however, that the ever popular KS Classifieds have been whipped back into shape and as you can see, the site has been updated to bring you all the latest info from this month's great mag. Thanks for your understanding and keep an eye out for the new KS BBS/Forum coming soon!

Cover Story
