Tottori Sand Museum: A Mesmerizing Exhibit

The world's first sand sculpture museum

By Judith Mikami    - 1 min read

Next to Tottori’s famous sand dunes is the world’s first sand museum dedicated to the art of sand sculpture. This year’s theme is based around the United Kingdom as the host of the 2012 summer Olympics. You will be bewildered at the sand art forms you see and wonder all those times you tried to build a sand castle at the beach why you were never able to do what these artists have been able to create. The theme changes each year so you will be able to visit each year to see something new.

Hi, I’m Judith Mikami originally from Auckland, New Zealand. I came to Japan about twenty years ago to experience a culture and country very different from my homeland. Like many who have ventured to Japan I fell in love with the people, culture and places and before I knew it I would meet my husband. I have lived only in Okayama Prefecture and call this area my home away from home.
