Tottori is located at the western edge of Japan’s main island of Honshu, in the northeast area of the Chugoku region. It is a fairly long and narrow prefecture. To the north is the Sea of Japan, with the Tottori Sand Dune and lovely beaches dotted with pine trees. In the south is the Chuguku Mountains, including Mt Daisen, the highest peak in the region. The climate is temperate, with four distinct seasons; weather is relatively fine from spring to autumn, with some snow in winter.
