DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO THE LIST -

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.
