A quick glance of today’s itinerary

 

 

Tottori Sand Dunes

We had a late start today as this was the only day we can sleep till after 9am as thsi is the only hotel we are staying for two nights – no need to check out!

We headed straight to the sand dunes which is already marked on my googlemap, it is approximately 15 minutes from my hotel

There is no closing time for the sand dunes, however there is a closing time for teh camel ride and the sand museum, so it is best to hurry.  If you would like to do other activities like paragliding and sandboarding, these must be prebooked few days in advanced on their website.
