Tottori Sand Dunes Sand Museum鳥取砂丘 砂の美術館
This is an art museum on Prefectural Route 319 in Yuyama, Fukubecho, Tottori City where sand sculptures, sculptures carved from sand, are exhibited. Sculptures are produced and exhibited on differing themes each year under the concept of travel around the world in sand, such as “Renaissance in Italy” and “World Heritages in Asia”. The displays can only be appreciated during the exhibition as when the exhibition has finished the sculptures turn back into sand.
