The famous Tottori Sand Dunes is the biggest attraction for tourists. These are the largest accessible dunes in Japan and have taken over 100,000 years to form. Ripples formed by wind and sand display some of nature's finest artwork. The world's only sand museum, located near the dunes, enthralls visitors each year with spectacular sand sculptures formed with elaborate detail.
