 The "Tottori Sand Dunes" are located about 20 minutes by bus from Tottori Station. The sand has been gathering here naturally for over 100,000 years, creating a golden landscape. You can explore the sand dunes on a fat-bike that can be ridden over the sand, or on a camel, paraglider, or sandboard.
The "Sand Museum" has beautiful sand sculptures themed on different countries and regions.

Shirakabe Dozogun

 Japanese traditional wooden structures and white lime plaster warehouses are lined-up at "Shirakabe Dozogun". This area once prospered as a commercial district of the castle town and the buildings were used as soy sauce distilleries and breweries. With the small stone bridges built over the canals, you can feel the history in this old-fashioned townscape.
Stroll on the streets, stop by the galleries and cafés and enjoy the feeling of being in old Japan.

Misasa Hot Spring

 As one of the most prominent radium hot springs in the world, Misasa Hot Spring has been helping people with various illnesses to relax for over 800 years. Inns, shops, foot baths and small temples line the stone-paved hot spring town.
