The two campuses of Kansai Gaidai (Nakamiya and Hotani) are located in Hirakata city in Osaka prefecture, the second largest business metropolis in Japan (after Tokyo). Hirakata is located between the famous former capitals of Kyoto and Nara, both of which abound in ancient temples and sites of historical and cultural importance.

Students that attend Kansai Gaidai become part of the dynamic international student body on campus. This university offers a unique opportunity for students to learn about Japan and Asia from a wide variety of perspectives with English course offerings in the Social Sciences, Humanities and Business/Economics. The program also offers a rigorous Japanese language studies component for students of all Japanese levels.
