FROM TOKYO TO TOTTORI
For unusual landscapes and rural charms, try out Tottori on your next Tokyo trip.
Found on western Honshu’s picturesque north coast, Tottori prefecture is a destination that pairs especially well with a city break. Start off your three- day Tokyo and Tottori escape by taking in the view from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, sampling monjayaki in Tsukishima Monja Street, and visiting the eighth- century Jindaiji Temple. The next day, it’s on to Haneda Airport for the 90- minute flight to Yonago, within easy reach of sightseeing spots dedicated to manga artist Mizuki Shigeru. Begin the following day with a trip to the mountain temple of Mitokusan Sanbutsuji, followed by a leisurely drive to Uradome Beach, the famous Tottori Sand Dunes, and The Sand Museum.
