View a natural wonder thousands of years in the making at Tottori Sand Dunes, located within a national park. These hills represent the largest sand dunes in Japan and stretch for 16 km (10 mi) in an east-to-west direction. Formed by sand washed ashore by the Sendaigawa River, the shape-shifting dunes alter their appearance every so often thanks to the influence of prevailing winds. View this attraction on foot, by riding a camel, or by hopping on a horse-drawn carriage. For something totally different, try paragliding or sandboarding in the area.

# 렌트를 추천드립니다 # 장화, 타올 정도 구매 가능합니다 # 별 쥐뿔도 없습니다 낮에 방문하세요 사막을 간접 체험해 볼 수 있는 장소. 사막을 생각했을때 생각할 수 있는 기본적인 단점을 제외하면 꽤나 장관이다. 버스시간이 상당히 제한적이니 반드시 확인할것 more »# Rental is recommended # Boots, towels are available for purchase # There are no star rats, there is no place to visit during the day to experience the desert indirectly. It's pretty spectacular, except for the basic shortcomings you can think of when you think of the desert. Bus times are quite limited, so be sure to check
砂丘”入場前”にビジターセンターで学ぶまでは、砂漠と砂丘の違いもワカラヘンでしたので、自分ももしかしたら、突然の砂嵐に巻き込まれて、中国の古代都市楼蘭のように消え去る覚悟も一応してまして・・。 入口に立ってみると、意外や意外、皆さま簡単そうに歩いているではありませんか！ 吹き出す汗にまみれながら、定番コースの馬の背まで下って上ってやっと砂丘とは如何なるものかと実感！ 幸か不幸か当日は快晴の炎天下で... more »The difference between the desert and the sand dune was wakarahen until it studied in the visitor center before the sand dune entrance, and i was caught in a sudden sandstorm, and the resolution to disappear like the ancient city of China Lou ran was tentatively ? When I stand at the entrance, i think everyone is walking easily, surprisingly! While covered in the sweat that blows out, i finally realize what the sand dune is like when i go down to the back of the horse of the standard course! Fortunately or unfortunately, the sun was in the blazing weather, so the worry of missing was gone, but we couldn't see the wind patternor the sand. I was intoxicated by the beautiful sand topography created by the power of nature and the collaboration of the Ultramarine Blue Sea of Japan, while leaving some worries about heat stroke. Beginners will find the Tottori Sand Dune Central Exploration Map, which is available at the Visitor Centre.
The most popular sand dunes in Japan. It took me about 10 minutes to climb up to the top. The views from the top was nice. Camel rides are available, but other than that, there were not that many entertainments available. It is very windy in that area. Make sure to wear warm. BBQ is available in summer. A lot of car parks available around the dunes. Some of them are free for charge, but the nearest one charges for 500 JPN. Many souvenir shops around. Not that many English available though.
Ever since I read about the sand dunes at Tottori, I’ve wanted to visit. They are stunning. Amazed at their formation and history. It’s very comfortable visiting in autumn; it’s not that hot and there’s still enough light. There are plenty of souvenir shops, but I couldn’t find good places for food; bring some of your own water and snacks.
