The Keihanshin industrial region (京阪神工業地帯, Keihanshin kōgyō chitai) encompasses the Japanese cities of Kyōto, Ōsaka and Kōbe and their surrounding prefectures.

The term Keihanshin is composed of one character of each of the cities, but in their Sino-Japanese reading: kei of Kyōto [京]都; han of Ōsaka 大[阪], shin of Kōbe [神]戸.
