In the past weekend, my friends and i made a trip to Tottori, about 3hrs drive from Okayama city. Well, the first time i heard of Tottori prefecture was when i watched a korean drama called “IRIS” (2009) which was about terrorism, spies and action.
So the image that i had of the city was pretty dark, with drug handlers and geisha in wooden houses and stuff (because of the night scene in the drama).
I admit i had the WRONG impression of the place.
It was TOTALLY NOT like that. I just watched too much IRIS. Haha
Before we reached Tottori, we stopped by Daisen (大山) and ate some soba for lunch.
On the way to Tottori…!
Along the way, we stopped by a gorgeous beach.
Finally, we reached the sand dunes of Tottori! Well, i would think of it as a mini desert.
See a slope up there? Usually everyone takes the gentler slope but not Kim-san!
Once you get up, you reach the other side which is a beach.
It was really crowded at the time so after that we left shortly for the Sand Musuem.
Theme this year is South-East Asia. See if you can spot any country that you know!
I was so hungry for dinner (we had yakiniku) that i forgot to take any pictures.
Oh well, that’s all for now! Thanks Kim-san for driving us around the entire day without a word of complaint. 🙂
