Yumeminato Tower and Yumeminato Park are both on the south side of Sakaiminato’s Takenouchidanchi, where the San’in Yumeminato Fair was held. Yumeminato is well known as Sakaiminato City’s main park, offering a panoramic view of the Sea of Japan and Mt Daisen. At the park’s centre, Yumeminato Tower is a 43-metre-tall structure with a viewing platform. The area provides souvenirs and local Tottori specialties as well as opportunities to try on ethnic costumes from Mongolia, Korea, China, and Russia—for free—for a cultural experience the whole family can enjoy.
On the tower’s fourth floor is the scenic Tower Cafe, offering an outstanding view of the landscape from its bright, spacious interior, making it an excellent place to relax.
Next door to the tower is Minato Onsen Honokami, with its rotemburo from which Mt Daisen and the Sea of Japan can be seen, and a most excellent family bathing area. A sauna is also available.
There’s also the Sakaiminato Sakana Centre, with fresh seafood of all sorts, and Ryokuchi Park, with its lovely sea view and wooden boardwalk with objets d’art, bustling with family activity in daytime and a great place for a date in the evening.
