It was my first sand dunes ever. I never thought that Japan have this kind of scenery before. I enjoy my visit and love the scenery as well. Try pear ice cream at down town of tottori since it was the icon of this city. Pear.

There is not much to see and if you have ever seen a real Sahara or a sandy beach then here is just... If you are passing by and have some time and don't know what to do, then give it a go

The most impressive of the trip to Tottori is the tourist taxi,it costs only 1,000 yen for full three hours.There plenty of courses [three places] for you to choose, but of course the first one is the most interesting; small islands,sand dune,andsand museum. The three hours is suffecient, though the driver cannot speak English, there's no problem at all.I love... More

A large beach area with huge sand dunes. Interesting walk to the front dune to look at the nice beach scenery. Good exercise. Fine sand quickly gets into your shoes. Some shops rent out rubber boots. Take the bus at loading area #0 at the Tottori Train Station. 370-yen. First trip is at 9:10 a.m. Go to the last stop... More

The landscape is stunning, but not a must see for people who are in Japan for the first time. I went from Kyoto to Tottori by train which was a nice but long ride. You have to take the bus from Tottori train station to the dunes (ask at the tourist information inside the station). I would visit the dunes... More

It was a cold, drizzly, windy day when we went, but was a such a different experience in Japan that it was really worth it. It was a tough walk up and down the dunes. Don't expect lots of dunes, but what is there is quite large. Sadly we didn't see the camels, but if I was a camel I... More

We were lucky to visit the dunes on a sunny, non-windy day. Although early autumn it was still very hot and there were many Japanese tourists enjoying the sights. You take the local bus from outside the JR station and get off at the top of a small hill where there is a huge restaurant, gift shop and parking for... More

I had fun in the dunes! I rode the camel, too. Camel ride is quite expensive, 1,800 yen for a 5-6 minutes ride but if you're up to experiencing new things you might as well try it. It's fun walking on the sand and the view of the dunes on a bright sunny day is great. Wear boots if you... More
