Tottori prefecture is best known for its beautifully rugged coastline featuring rare and massive sand dunes which cover over 30 square kilometers of coast to the north of the city center in Japan. The abundance of sand allows world-class sculptors to showcase their wonderful sand sculptures in eastern Tottori’s Sand Museum.

 

Tottori (鳥取市 Tottori-shi) is the capital city of Tottori Prefecture in the Chūgoku region (中国地方 Chūgoku Chihō) where traditional crafts and customs continue to be practiced in their original form.
