Tottori Sand Dunes

A large sand pile exists in western Honshu and I thought it was just the thing I needed to see to remedy a fit of wanderlust that hit me during the summer holiday break.

Measuring 16km by 2km the Tottori Sand Dunes lie just northeast of the city of Tottori on the Japan Sea coast, about three and a half hours by bus from Osaka.

I arrived in the late afternoon on a Saturday and slept in my tent at a free public campsite on the edge of the dunes. I woke up before sunrise and set out over the dunes, enjoying a a gorgeous day and a thrilling experience walking over the sand taking pictures.
