A highlight of the west of the country, Tottori sits along the coast of the Sea of Japan.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tottori Karo Kanikkokan and Mitokusan Sanbutuji Temple. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Tottori: Arayu (in Shinonsen-cho) and Kami-cho (Daijoji Temple & Amarube Railroad Bridge, Sorano Eki). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Tottori Sand Dunes, explore the galleries of Warabekan, look for gifts at Tofu Chikuwa no Sato Chimura, and walk around Kyusho Park.

Walkable, small, and aesthetically charming, Kobe has served as Japan's first and premier international trading outpost since opening to trade with China in the mid-19th century.

Next up on the itinerary: admire the sheer force of Nunobiki Falls (Nunobiki-No-Taki) and admire the natural beauty at Rokko Alpine Garden.
