から~にかけて and から~まで are very easy to confuse.

から~にかけて is used to describe a range of time or space with a vague beginning and vague ending:
からにかけて

から~まで is used to describe a range of time or space with a definite beginning and definite ending:
9から12まで

I believe they're just about the same, but the latter one seems to be rarer, maybe a bit more polite? Like, I think the former would be used more in common conversation, with にかけて showing up more in writing. This is just a guess, but it seems right to me. Looks like you've studied about as long as I have, so you can kinda feel what I'm saying, I bet.

That's the impression I got as well. I've never noticed anyone say にかけて, but then again sometimes I just stop paying attention when there is a group of people speaking Japanese.

I hate it how your mind sometimes just turns off the 'listening' without you ever consciously deciding to do so.

Could someone explain the difference between にかけて and になけての?
For example:
1) 西から にかけての があった
2) から にかけて っている
Thank you!

I think the difference is only in structure, and not in meaning (in a sense).

In the first example, you're attaching the entire phrase to the noun - saying 'in the region from Western to Eastern Japan'; if you were to drop it, I think it would translate closer to 'from West to East Japan'.

With the second, it's a similar situation - you simply dropped the (or something similar) because it's understood within the context of the sentence. the にかけて phrase is simply assigning a location for the second half of the sentence, and not specifically tying it to a single noun.

The difference between から~まで and から~にかけて is that the latter is a rough estimate.

From ける. That makes sense.

Example sentence (1)
