  • Sand laying in ripples and waves, stretching out in the distance, with the sound of ocean waves echoing in your ears. The Tottori Sand Dunes are a sight you don’t expect to find in the lush green country of Japan. Yet Japan has surprised me again with presenting the unexpected beauty of nature. Being the main attraction in Tottori and it being the Saturday before the New Year’s holiday, the area had a lot of people. But it is so large and open, it did not feel crowded. Instead it was interesting to see the lines of people’s slowly making their way up and down the sand dunes (or running in the case of some energetic kids and young guys). There are areas less touched by human footprints you can admire, too. I really enjoyed going down the hill to the beach and admiring the powerful ocean waves. Overall, a really cool area (literally. It’s chilly in winter despite looking like a warm desert), and, best of all, free. Except for transportation to get here. I took the tourist Loop Bus from a Tottori station. It’s worth getting an all-day pass if you want to hit multiple areas in Tottori.
  • This is an amazing place! First time ever in my life and spent just a short time due to strong winds and coldness but I enjoyed every single moments right there! It’s incredible how those big sandy places existed in Japan. Highly recommended! But if you go there during the winter time, I suggest that you bring some warm clothes and wrap yourself well! Enjoy the desert land in Japan plus you’ll see camels there! :) Come and enjoy! Cheers
