TOTTORI SAND DUNES

鳥取砂丘[TOTTORI-SAKYŪ]

Sand dunes in Tottori Prefecture in western Japan. Tottori Sand Dunes were designated a national natural treasure for their unique geographical features, such as undulating topography, wind ripples, sand poles, and diverse plant communities. Spanning 16 kilometers east to west, it is Japan’s largest sand dunes, where visitors can enjoy camel rides, paragliding, and other activities. One of the most popular scenic spots is the 47-meter-high row of dunes called Uma no Se (literally means “horseback”), from the top of which you can look over the winding coastline and beautiful ocean horizon. You can also climb up and down the dunes or slide down the slopes on a sled. It is a fun place for children of all ages.
