Journey to Tottori Part 1: Amanohashidate!


My journey was set for Tottori, since my first week in Japan I’ve been so interested in making this trip. But Tottori is so far and out of the way it just never seemed to line up right.

Finally weather, time and community support helped me get out there, and the first major destination I visited was Amanohashidate, which is one of Japan’s top 3 beautiful sights. I had to make this a stop along the way.

Its amazing that this sandbar was created naturally and stretches out across the this bay on the Sea of Japan. Absolutely loved the view and you can walk/bike it to the other side and enjoy a completely different view from that side:

With a beautiful shrine in the middle dedicated to Dragon Gods with a famous historical spring right next to it, this place was amazing!

come check out this beautiful place with me!
