Tottori Sand Dunes

Experience an extraordinary place that does not feel like Japan

One of the largest sand dunes in Japan, the Tottori Sand Dunes were created over a period of 100,000 years.
They stretch 16 km from east to west and 2 km from north to south. Depending on the topography and weather conditions such as wind, you can see various expressions such as wind ripples and sand curtains.
Rare dune plants can also be found here.

The world’s first “Sand Museum,” which exhibits sand sculptures, is located nearby and is a new landmark of the Tottori Sand Dunes.
