Recommended Sightseeing Routes


  • 🌇🚢Sunset Cruise🌇🚢
Only in summer? The sunset cruise on Uradome Coast :) Watching the sunset in the vast sea and the fishing boat lights, dotting the horizon, was simply stunning! I treated myself to a 40-minute cruise. The boat leaves at the best time, 6:30 pm, where it’s still bright and the sea water is visibly clear. As the sun slowly sets, the color of the sky turns red and the sea reflects that beautiful color.
Daytime pleasure boats operate daily from March to November. You can cruise around the islets and coves along the jagged coast. However, boats don’t operate when the waves are high. 😢
Sunset cruise: 2,000 yen/person
Daytime cruise: 1,400 yen/person
Address: 2182 Otani, Iwami Town

  • 🐟🚢Tajiri Fishing Port and Tajiri Shrine⛩⛩
Taking pictures of beautiful scenery is a fun way of exploring a fishing village. It may appear at first as an unexciting country town, but as you stroll down the narrow roads and take pictures of the coastal waters, you begin to appreciate the peaceful atmosphere and the privilege of enjoying the outdoors in this day and age.
Tajiri Shrine is on a hill overlooking the Sea of Japan near Tajiri Fishing Port. It is dedicated to Ebisu, which is believed to be the god of fishing.
Address of Tajiri Shrine: 501 Tajiri, Iwami Town (in Tajiri Port, Uradome Coast)

  • 🏠🏠Guesthouse stay🏠🏠 - Hideshima - 
How about staying at a folk guesthouse? Here you can get a good feel of the local culture and lifestyle. This is also a great private place for family and friends.

It features a traditional Japanese interior and a calm atmosphere with folk arts.

  • 👩🏻🧑🏻‍🦱Amazing women of Tottori👩🏻‍🦱🧑🏻‍🦳

Owner of Mitaki-en, the restaurant hidden in the forest 

She is the wife of the mayor, who had a dream to have his own restaurant inside the forest. Since he had another dream, to serve for the people in his hometown as a mayor, his wife took part to manage Mitaki-en. She is almost 70 but can speaks fluent English. She serves each customer with heart of Omotenashi, the  true hospitality. Do visit Mitaki-en when you’re in Tottori! The beautiful hidden restaurant serves dishes using organic fresh forest vegetables and local fishes. And of course you can really enjoy Japanese hospitality there.
