Tottori Sakyu (sand dunes)

Tottori Sakyu (sand dunes)

Located in the city of Tottori, the Tottori Sakyu is Japan’s largest stretch of sand dunes and is part of the Sanin Kaigan National Park. The dunes are 16 km long from east to west and 2 km wide from north to south. They were created by sediment deposits carried from the Chugoku Mountains by the Sendaigawa River into the Sea of Japan. The sea currents and wind carried the mountains’ granitic sand onto the shore, where the coastal winds constantly shape the sand dunes.
