Where in the world will you find rolling sand dunes, camel rides and endless, sandy views?

The answer: Japan.

Located in the southwest region of Honshū Island, the Tottori Sand Dunes are the largest in Japan. They were formed over a period of almost 100,000 years.

The dunes create a desert-esque environment (the camels are imported) that offers unique views and activities for the adventurous, like paragliding and sandboarding.
