    Tottori Iwami-gun Iwamicho Karakawa
    Some of the Chugoku region's most prominent marshes lie in a valley 400 meters above sea level amidst the highlands extending east of Mt. Inaba a 30-minute drive from JR Iwami Station. Marshes of various sizes are scattered along a stream and Osawa Pond in the area; a habitat for some 100 varieties of march plants, it has been designated a National Natural Monument. The area is famous for its colony of rabbitear irises, which bloom from mid-May to early June. Interestingly, the rabbitear irises which grow here will fail to take root if transplanted elsewhere. Carnivorous plants such as the round-leaved sundew also grow here.
  • Kappa Spring

    Tottori Sakaiminato-shi Taishomachi
    A three-minute walk from JR Sakaiminato Station. This much talked about tourist destination was built in March 2008 in the Yokai Plaza situated on Mizuki Shigeru Road. Visitors can have fun looking for the cute bronze statues of characters based on mythical Japanese yokai monsters created by Shigeru Mizuki, including Kappa no Sanpei, a kappa (mythical Japanese water creature), a tanuki (raccoon dog), an azuki-arai, a gangi kozo, a sazae-oni, Shonbenkozo (Mannekin Pis-style Kitaro fountain) no Kitaro, swimming Nezumi-Otoko, and Akuma-kun. Note the spooky gouts of mist the fountain also emits! Visitors are also recommended to check out the 177 yokai statues which dot the Mizuki Shigeru Road.

    Tottori Tohaku-gun Kotouracho Miyaba Kasuga Jinja
    An enormous tree on the precincts of Kasuga Shrine, said to have originated from Kasuga Taisha Shrine in Nara. Estimated to be 1,000 years old, it's on a steep slope near the torii gate on the approach to the shrine. Considered sacred since ancient times, it is about 15 meters high and its diameter at eye level is 9.7 meters; its branches stretch 27.5 meters east-west and 21.6 meters north-south, covering a total area of about 660 square meters. The enormous trunk dividing into several boles not far from the ground is a sight to behold. In a survey conducted by the Environment Agency in 1989, it was recognized as one of the largest trees in Japan along with an enormous Suda-jii beech tree in Yakumo Village, Shimane Prefecture.

    Tottori Saihaku-gun Daisencho Mikuriya 29-4

    山陰道名和ICを降り、案内板に従って走ること2分ほど。迷うことなく漁港のほとりにある店前に到着しました。県外ナンバー車もちらほら停まっていました。1階の鮮魚コーナーを横目に階段を上がって食堂へ。食券を買い、番号札をもらって待ちます。ほどなく呼ばれ、カウンターでお膳を受け取るという半セルフシステムです。店内は、ご近所さん、ドライブ途中に立ち寄った体のグループ客、ランチの営業さんや出張サラリーマンらし...
