FREEBIE - Japan's Biggest Sand Dune

FREEBIE - Japan's Biggest Sand Dune photo
It dawned on me that all my posts on this site are about costs of living and travel, and nothing specific about destinations.  Japan has a lot of free and cheap attractions, and one of the best ones is definitely Tottori Sakyu - Japan's biggest sand dune in Tottori. 

I think it's one of the best because it's definitely out there for Japan, both geographically and figuratively - have you ever associated sand dunes with Japan?  I don't know about you, but when I think of Japan, I think of culture and history because my mother's family is Japanese.

The only reason I got to see Tottori Sakyu is because I was sent to Tottori for work, and I took the spare time that I had to go sightseeing.  Whenever I'm sent anywhere for work, I spend as much time as I can sightseeing; I go as early as possible and leave as late as possible. :D Work always covers your transportation and accommodations, so it costs you next to nothing to go sightseeing.

Anyway, check out last week's Photo Friday post I did on Tottori Sakyu - http://www.trekkingwithbecky.com/japans-biggest-sand-dune/  :D  I hope you make it there some day and that you enjoy other posts. :D

Find me on social media, and don't be shy to give me a shout anytime! :D


I'm half-Japanese originally from Canada, and I've been living in Japan since Sept. 2010.

I keep a blog about living in Japan and travel - Trekking with Becky - www.trekkingwithbecky.com
