What is Tottori?

Tottori prefecture is Japanese seasonal diversity at its best: Huge sand dunes cover the north coast, making for the perfect summer beach trip complete with the unexpected addition of camels; November brings the delectable snow crab, while winter around Mount Daisen, the Chugoku region’s highest mountain, promises snow sports and magical views.

Getting Around

A little off the beaten track, Tokyo to Tottori is likely to take you around five hours on a train starting on the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen and changing onto the Super Hakuto at Himeji. For a speedier trip from Tokyo, jump on a plane from Tokyo’s Haneda Airport to Tottori Sand Dunes Conan Airport for direct access to the sand dunes or Yonago Kitaro Airport in the west of the prefecture if you’re arriving from overseas.
