Tottori City (鳥取), the capital of Tottori Prefecture, is located in western Japan along the coast of the Sea of Japan. Tottori is most famous for its sand dunes, the largest in Japan, which cover over 30 square kilometers of coast to the north of the city center.

Tottori City has been the regional seat of power since the era of warring states, and the ruins of the former castle can still be found at the northeastern edge of the city center. A variety of museums and Kannon-in Temple are also located around central Tottori.
