At this facility standing on the Tottori Sand Dunes, you can have fun learning about nature and human activities in the area, including about the plants and animals which live on the dunes, and the history of the relationship between people and the dunes. In the Sunakura dome theater, you can watch a stunning movie about the dunes. You can also watch and listen to a detailed explanation about how the wave patterns are formed in the dunes as a guide uses a one-of-a-kind machine which recreates sand dune wave patterns.

Review of Tottori Sand Dunes Visitor Center

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/02/18 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...
Reviewed:2019/09/03 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...
Reviewed:2021/05/02 足の洗い場があります
駐車場から砂丘に入る前にこちらのビジターセンターに立ち寄れます。本来は長靴をこちらで借りられるのですが現在は一時的に長靴レンタルを中止しています。代わりに対面の砂丘会館で靴を覆うビニールを借りられました。
また砂丘から帰ってきた後に足を洗う場所もありました。

          Tottori prefecture is Japanese seasonal diversity at its best: Huge sand dunes cover the north coast, making for the perfect summer beach trip complete with the unexpected addition of camels; November brings the delectable snow crab, while winter around Mount Daisen, the Chugoku region's highest mountain, promises snow sports and magical views.
