In 2019, Tottori is finally getting well-deserved credit as an “adventure destination.” Major Tokyo-based travel agency H.I.S. now has a “self-drive” tour package there, and the Canada-based tour company, G Adventures, will include the great Tottori Sand Dunes for its 2019 Japan tour. Despite being one of the least-visited prefectures from overseas tourists, according to stats from the Japan National Tourism Organization, Tottori is showing up in 2019 as a dose of homegrown intrigue outside the Golden Route.
