Tottori is the least-populated prefecture in Japan, but it is blessed with abundant nature, such as the country’s renowned Tottori Sand Dunes. Residents have striven to rejuvenate local satoyama areas and their environments by taking advantage of the prefecture’s small size, which enables its residents to take action quickly and effectively.
Some of the delectable specialties produced out of these efforts are Tottori Wagyu beef, which won in the beef cattle category of a national competition. Crabs are another resource, with Tottori having the largest landing volume nationwide. Tottori considers itself a food capital.
Tottori still retains what the country has nurtured and handed down over generations. Please pay a visit to the prefecture to encounter and discover authentic Japan.
I express my appreciation for receiving the honorable satoyama award.
