Tottori Things to Do: 11 reviews and 30 photos
I can't say that I have travelled Japan extensively but among the places of interest I have been to, Tottori sand dunes will definitely qualify as one of the top choices in my ranking list. This is embarrassing but before I arrived at Tottori, I was actually half-concerned about whether I would get to see the sand dunes in the first place. Won't they be buried under the snow, I questioned myself. It was only when I reached this paradise that I realised how naive I had been. Of course, it would be business as usual! And although I didn't ride camels and get a Lawrence of Arabia experience, the experience of seeing sand and snow for as far as my eyes could see was novel in itself.
The winds are gonna slap you so hard (to put it crudely) but be sure to presevere and climb all the way to the top, for the bird's eye view of the dunes is priceless. You would definitely want to stand, stare and either contemplate about life or cam-whore indiscriminately, depending on the kind of person you are.
I want to revisit this place again summer. And I guess the best compliment I can pay the dunes is that I am certain I would want to visit it again in winter had I visited it during summer.
Directions: Take 200¥ loop bus from Tottori station to get to the dunes
