Attractions in Tottori

Tottori, nestled between the Sea of Japan and Chugoku Mountains, is known for both it’s breathtaking scenery on its coast and the largest sand dune system in all of Japan.  Though open spaces and nature are a calling card of the prefecture, it is also known for its cultural assets, both historical and modern – producing two very popular manga artists.

While the rural nature of the prefecture means there is limited access to accessible rail and buses, the prefecture has been focusing heavily on accessible transportation for it’s aging population and has one of the highest percentages of accessible taxis in all of Japan – nearly half!  There are special plans for visitors to Tottori where taxis can be rented for 3 hours for only 2,000 yen per person.

You can find lists of companies with accessible taxis below (Japanese only):
