My main attraction to come to Tottori was the sand dune! I couldn't believe the first time I heard that there is a desert in Tottori! I was so happy to see it finally. The sand, the sea and the vast s...
This is a smaller piece of the sand dunes which used to be in this area. They have camels which you can ride and have your picture taken. Unfortunately, sand dunes are not rare where I live, but I com...
good points It's my first time to see the Sand Dune. before I got there, it's really hard for me to imagine both the Sand Dune and the sea will be so close. After I visit there, I was totally impr...
The wonders of Japanese cities come to see the sand dunes and the sea
When it comes to Japan, everyone should have a modern city in their minds, or a wooden house in the Edo period, a quiet street! And Tottori, this place is really not like in Japan, the city is amazed by the desert, next to the sea, you have to marvel at the creativity of the Creator!
As the countdown to Japan's GDP per capita, Tottori Prefecture, I can't help but want to tease it. The city construction of Tottori City in the county-level city is like the towns of other counties. The big shopping malls didn't even see one. We can't help but sigh for a long time here: Is this really the capital of Tottori Prefecture? (I have a hard time finding a place that is even worse than Gaozhi!)
Of course, the backwardness of GDP per capita does not affect the unique scenery of Tottori. As the hometown of Aoyama Gangchang, the author of the cartoon Conan, Tottori Prefecture It is also a painstaking attraction to attract everyone, even the airport has been renamed: Tottori Sand Dunes Conan Airport! Of course, one of the scenes of the cartoon Conan ~ Tottori sand dunes is indeed worth coming!
First of all, you can go to the Sand Museum of Art and enjoy the Sand Carvings created by the craftsmen of various countries! The work of emmm~"sand carving" is really very lean. Every year, there are different themes. This year's theme is South Asia. You can see the history and culture of various temples in South Asia! Of course, after reading it, I can't help but ridicule: "True sand sculpture!" Next to the
art museum is the famous Tottori sand dune. It has such a large desert in the city, and it is really strange to the sea. Here, you can take the cableway between the sand dunes and the observation deck on the mountain, or you can ride a camel and play a paraglider! Of course, friends who want to save money can climb down the sand dunes and feel the desert! (Well, I have been to the Sahara...) You can play for a long time!
Transportation: Take JR to Tottori Station and take the bus to Tottori Sand Dunes!
Photo Guide: You can wear bright colors, take different Japanese travel photos, and you can pretend in the Sahara! Note that you can't fly a drone here, because this is in the city! ! !
Tottori Sand Dunes is located in the east of Tottori Prefecture and faces the Sea of Japan. It is about 16 kilometers long from east to west and 2.4 kilometers wide from north to south. It is the largest sand dune in Japan and a representative attraction in Tottori Prefecture. The shape of the sand dunes is fickle due to the sea breeze. Take a 20-minute bus ride from JR Tottori Station to Sand Dunes, or take the Kirin Lion Ring Bus for about 25 minutes and get off at Tottori Sand Dunes to reach Tottori Sand Dunes. It is very attractive all year round. In spring, summer and autumn, you can ride a camel, take a paragliding, sand skiing, snow in winter, you can experience the fun of rolling in the snow in the sand dunes...
I The paraglider of the experience, the coach taught me a few movements and corresponding English words, helped me to paragliding, and made safety measures. When flying, the coach would use a loudspeaker to guide, so be sure to listen carefully! When I first flew, I was very nervous. After landing safely, I found this super fun! I played it again and again. The average tourist is also playing two or three times. The charge is 7500 half a day. That is, you are willing to play for a while, but after jumping, you need to put everything up and then go uphill... In fact, it is still very tired. z
I never thought that the Japanese seaside would hide huge sand dunes.
This is the largest sand dune in Japan. It is the only desert in Japan's island country and a representative spot in Tottori Prefecture. More than ten kilometers long, more than two kilometers wide, and placed in it, as if really in the desert, between the fierce yellow sand.
The sand dunes have a depression of 40 meters deep, and there are hills of up to 50 meters. There are wind patterns blown by strong winds, and sand curtains that slide down like avalanches. They change and change without stopping. This is a mountain peak formed by the accumulation of volcanic ash floating on the muddy sand of the Chiyoda River. It has been subjected to the wind and waves of the Sea of Japan and has been created by the 100,000-year-old masterpiece of nature.
The camel riding experience is available in the scenic area, and there are also a variety of headscarves available. We, in the Tottori sand dunes, made an Arab. Walking on a camel, the mountains and the sea are coming.
Tottori sand dunes, many people do not know that there are deserts in Japan, but not so big, so called sand dunes. This desert is connected with the sea and the oasis. It is also a rare sight in Tottori Prefecture... it is also the home of Conan.
