If I may
You should not have any problems with your Japanese since you said it is decent enough. You will be able to get by properly on your standard Nihongo.
You will rarely encounter people speaking to you in Kansai-ben unless you happen to meet an elderly person. Happened to me once. An old lady smiled at me in the street and she started chatting away and pointing at my school. All I could manage was "hai..." ^_^;;
Enjoy your trip!
