A new addition to the Scenic Eclipse itineraries, the city of Sakaiminato is found in the Tottori Prefecture in the south of Japan.
A Scenic Freechoice excursion will take you to Mount Daisen, also known as “mini Fuji,” or to Grand Shrine of Izumo, thought of as the oldest shrine in Japan. Although no one knows when it was built, records show it was already in existence by the early 700s.
Alternatively, join a city tour to learn about manga and spot famous characters from the GeGeGe no Kitaro comics dotted around the city. The comic’s author was from Sakaiminato.
