  • Take a trip back in time when you visit Kurayoshi City and its surrounds: an ancient hot spring, historic townscape, and local traditional crafts await! 

Stroll through streets lined with white-walled storehouses and dotted with carp-filled waterways in Kurayoshi’s old merchant quarters. Make your own Hakota doll, a centuries-old local toy and good luck charm. 

When you’re ready to truly unwind, head to nearby Sekigane Onsen. Ranked as one of Japan’s top 100 hot springs, this millennium-old resort boasts remarkably clear and odorless “platinum” radon waters renowned for their healing properties. 

Once it’s a bit warmer, get outdoors and check out Mt. Utsubuki and the local hiking trails, or even visit a wasabi field!

  • In Yonago, there is a crab restaurant called Sakaiminato Kani Shokudo. Here, customers can challenge a 40-minute all you can eat snow crab course (4,000 yen for men and 3,000 yen for women). According to the staff, the current record for most crabs eaten in this time period is 8. Boiled, the crabs are served whole, and competing customers must also eat the meat in the body, so not only eating speed but also meat picking speed becomes important.

How many crabs do you think you could pick clean in 40 minutes?

  • When you hear the word “train”, you probably imagine a utilitarian form of public transportation; Ametuchi, the new sightseeing train that runs between Tottori and Shimane, defies this image. 

With a design that gives expression to the beautiful sky and sea of San’in, innovative utilization of cultural crafts as interior fixtures, and use of local wood in tables and seats, the train itself becomes part of the sightseeing experience. Also, onboard food and drink service includes culturally thematic box lunches made from local ingredients. 

In even minor details, Ametuchi is more than simply meets the eye. Of course, you can also turn your attention to the beautiful scenery outside the window.
