    Well it`s not really a desert, but thats what they call it here. In fact it`s the largest sand dune in japan. Chances are you`ve seen it in various japanese movies, if there is a sand dune scene it would be here. When I first moved here there was almost no vegetation, but it has been getting a steady covering over the last few years. And now they are really worried as this is the main place for tourist in Tottori. When it gets colder I`ll go again and take some snaps after a strong wind, patterns are stunning. There are still too many people walking around the place even at sunrise.

    enjoy

    thanks, well captured!

    such scene reminds me of what I saw in Andrea Bocelli concert DVDs, which were shot in Tuscany, Italy.
