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.
After walking for an hour at the sand dunes, I was exhausted but it was only 4pm. So we decided to head to the Sand museum right next door
Tottori Sand Museum
Next stop was a shop called Hard Off which is everywhere in Japan. We drove pass this one in Tottori and decided to check out the store.
Hard off sells all sorts of second hand items from clothes to speakers to toys to game consoles.
