Vacation at Tottori

As you’ve most likely noticed, I haven’t been writing on this blog lately. That’s because my family and I were on a trip to a prefecture called Tottori, located here in Japan:

Oh, and maybe I was a little forgetful…

But, anyway, today I’d like to share with you the different places we went, in order. So, enjoy four awesome places we went to in Tottori!

#1: Mount Daisen

Mount Daisen, a tall, proud mountain rising up from the land, so close to the ocean, could be a competitor to Mt. Fuji for its beautiful scenery.

We climbed the mountain for about 3 hours. Unfortunately, we couldn’t go any higher because there had been a snowstorm the day before, and there was lots of snow on the top.

Despite it being pretty steep, my brother, even though he has a broken arm, was running ahead, and we had to keep up with him. When I was dead tired, he still wanted to go more!

#2: Adachi Art Museum

The Adachi Museum of Art is one of the most famous art museums in Japan, also home to a garden that was awarded the best garden of Japan.

#3 : The Sand Museum of Tottori

The Sand Museum of Tottori takes visitors around the world by sand. What does that mean? Well, every year a group of sand sculptors sculpts different things and places in and about different countries. This time, it was about South Asia.

It was all very realistic, leaving me amazed that it was all made of sand!

#4 : Tottori Sand Dunes

The Tottori Sand Dunes, the last place we visited before we left for Kyoto, is the only large sand dune in Japan, and it is right next to the Sand Museum.

Lots of people were spilled onto the sand dune and climbing the massive hill at the far side of the dunes. It was a great place, and it was good exercise climbing up the hill.

All in all, Tottori was a great place, and I recommend anyone to go there and enjoy a great time!
