Discussion and comments
from (time/place) to (time/place)

there are other time/place descriptors like [niwatatte] and [otsuujite] but these all just take one place. [kara-nikakete] has a start and ending.

#4350
(〜から〜にかけて』は始まりと終わりがそれほどはっきりしていない。後の文は一回だけのことではなく。連続的なこと。
だから、『彼は腰からひざまでびしょぬれになった』のほうが正しいと思います。
jpmandy
so its basically the same as 'made' - right?
hatsumomo
Yes but nuance is different.
When you use "made", the end of time/place is very clear. While "nikakete" is the end is ambiguous.
