hkskyline's 2018 in Tottori

Tottori is on the less-touristed Sea of Japan side of the country northwest of Osaka. To encourage visitors to make the detour to this region, the city has partnered with the intercity bus company to offer 1000 yen one-way rides from Osaka.

But a cheap bus ride was not the main reason why I was there. Stretching 2.4km x 16km, Tottori's sand dunes are the largest in Japan. Who would imagine Japan would have this type of landscape? This isn't an arid part of the country either, with greenery surrounding all this sand.





















Back in the city, I was surprised to find quiet streets in the city centre and a general sense of decay.

With little enticing retail shops north of the train station and many empty storefronts, I headed south to look for a large department store. Typically, I would expect many choices clustered around the city's main station, but that was not the case. The Aeon, with a large supermarket, is about a 10 minute walk southwest of the station. Views from the parking lot are decent.









The supermarket is decently large with a vast selection. Being close to the sea, I went to see their seafood selection.
