There are four railway stations in Japan that have 恋(koi, love) in their names. Koiyamagata station is one of these four, and it’s located somewhere between Kobe and Tottori.

I guess it’s only known among local people and certain big fans of unique stations. At least, I didn’t know its name until I checked what other attractions I could expect on the way to Tottori! I’m lucky I found it! :D

Uradomé beach near Tottori sand hill is very transparent!

It was a quiet, stunning view:)

I visited Tottori Sand Hill on Thursday.
It’s a pretty famous sightseeing spot in Japan and everybody knows it by name. But me, grown up in Sapporo and lived in Tokyo for so long, I have never imagined I would visit this place for real. It seemed such a far-away part of Japan, and domestic travel is always very expensive. (So I’d rather travel abroad than visiting somewhere far in Japan)

However, now that I’m living in Kobe, this place is like 2-3 hours drive away. My husband and I both got so excited when we recognized it’s so close now! :)

Tottori city, where located opposite side of Japan from Kobe.

Kobe is facing the Pacific Ocean, and Tottori is facing Japan Sea.
