Well-preserved historic architecture

Traditional buildings from the Edo Period to the Meiji Era are well-preserved. Visitors should enjoy the quite and peaceful environment while strolling around.

If you plan to visit Tottori Prefecture, I recommend you to drop in Kurayoshi City. There is traditional street. This area is famous for red color roof tiles called "Sansyu-gawara". So you can see old store house with red color roof tiles. And you can fun Japanese sake and healthy Japanese dishes etc.

The whole of Kurayoshi has the feel of 'real' Japan. These warehouses are a great place to visit with some huge fish to see and some great local eateries. I'd recommend the sweet potato chips from the main shop and the Kurayoshi beer!
