Tottori is not a famous prefecture for tourist.

But if you are interested in Anime or Manga, I'd like you to visit there.
There is a street called "Yokai street" in Sakaiminato, Tottori.

You can enjoy the world of "GeGeGe no Kitaro"

It is Manga series in 1959 by Shigeru Mizuki.
He is best known for its popularization of the folklore creatures known as "Yokai" a
class of spirit-monster to which all of the main characters belong.

The train is covered by character design, it's so cute!!
You will see so many  Yokai bronze statues when you walk the street.
It is fun to take a picture!!

I found Ema (It is wooden tablets on which to write one's wishes) in the shape of  Yokai, breads are also!!

I like to try craft beer, so I tried beer called "Kitaro beer".

The signs are so funny!!
At the hair salon, cafe, even street lights...
You can see Yokai everywhere!!

Tottori is also famous for sand dune.
It is only one place in Japan.

I hope you have chance to visit Yokai town:)
