  • Small but effective, science center

    This little center explains quite a lot about why the sand dunes are here, and how lighting across the ridges of the sand dunes changes, and how ripples are formed. We had particular fun learning...
  • Great visitor center especially outside

    Great (also in size) visitor center located at the base of the stairs going up the sand dunes. The sand dunes are just a part of the Sanin Kaigan National Park which is much bigger than the sand...
  • 無料で気軽に砂丘を学ぶ

    鳥取砂丘について知ることができる展示があり、しかも入館無料なのが嬉しいです。2階のドームシアターでは、砂丘の四季を紹介する約10分のビデオを上映しているので必見です。また、休憩スペースのほか、コインロッカーや足洗い場もあるので、砂丘の散策を快適に楽しむことができます。なお、駐車場は有料です。
