What is a Ryokan? Ryokans are the best way to experience Japanese culture and enjoy the true comforts of Japanese hospitality and service.

Tottori Prefecture is located in the western part of Honshu along the Sea of Japan and between Shimane and Hyogo Prefectures. The origin of the name of this prefecture comes from the Japanese word "tori" or bird. During the Nara Period (8 Century) this part of Japan had many lakes and marshes, and the people who lived here caught the local water birds for a living. Today, Tottori Prefecture is known for its forest and agricultural industries (the popular Japanese persimmons and pears are grown here in abundance). In the southern part of the prefecture lies the Chugoku mountain range with Mount Daisen being the highest mountain.
