The Kansai (
かんさい
関西
) region encompasses Japan's second largest city, Osaka (
おおさか
大阪
), as well as the historical capital Kyoto. The Japanese spoken in Kansai is a little different to 'standard' Japanese, or
ひょうじゅんご
標準語
. The differences include pronunciation, but also grammar and vocabulary, so it is considered a 'dialect' (rather than a regional 'accent') known as Kansai-ben (
かんさいべん
関西弁
).
