Uradome Coast–Tottori 2019Jun-

Last summer we took a relaxing Onsen trip to Ginzan Onsen in Yamagata, this summer we are shifting our relaxing spirit to Chugoku region, to the home of the legendary white bunny—Tottori Prefecture. What comes to your mind when hearing about Tottori prefecture? Tottori is the least populated prefecture in Japan, and the logo of the prefecture indicates “bird” and “advancement” Tottori has a wonderful ocean climate with four seasons and many unspoiled natural views. Today we are going to visit the Uradome Coast, which is also the featured Gotochi of Tottori in 2016.

Uradome Coast is formed by marine erosion, which led to unique natural cliffs, caves and large rocks of unusual shapes. It’s also part of the Sanin Kaigan National Park (wikipedia). The name Uradome means inlet and abundant. Not only can you enjoy the breathtaking sceneries, but you can also canoeing and even paddle yourself around the clearest waters among the cliffs. Uradome Coast is also featured in the famous animation Free! In 2013. There are three most special sceneries around the coast. Firstly the ‘Shirahara’ Coast, consisting of five smaller islands, also named Kanawa Godou, meaning land of vegetable flowers. The second coast is ‘Nishiwaki’, where you can enjoy turquois view along the shores. The third view is ‘Senkan Matsushima’—the cliff you see on the 2016 Gotochi. Due to waves constantly splashing, the unique door-like rock was formed.

Nearby Uradome Coast, you can also enjoy the black and white ice-cream made of cuttlefish sauce and enjoy the singings of seagulls, but be careful, don’t let them grab your ice-cream! There is also the Sanin Kaigan National Park consisting of wonderful experience centers and views. A tourist from Hong Kong filmed a nice video of her experience around Uradome Coast, please view it here. Also enjoy a nice bird-eye view from here.

Besides Uradome Coast, Tottori Prefecture and Chugoku Region has a lot to offer. The Tottori Sakyu Sand Dune is a unique place to feel the desert in Japan. Nearby prefectures include Okayama, Shimane and Hiroshima, all have fascinating history, views and foods. Tottori offers very convenience connection flights from Tokyo, Osaka etc. and very fast Shinkansen routes from all over Japan. So what are you waiting for? Start planning your trip to Chugoku NOW!

There are four types of groups, routine groups of 1 Japan X OC members and host groups where one host offers/requests a specific kind of cards. If Japan members host a group, only OC can join. If OC members host a group, only Japan members can join. For wishlist groups, please don’t be too specific about your wishes, I will deny any member from joining if the wishlists are too narrow and only few members have the cards. If you have any specific wishes, please open a host group.
In the third and fourth section, there are many item RR groups and JapanXJapan Groups, please take a look! Welcome to join!

For routine groups, or non-hosted groups, Japan members send three cards and receive 3 cards as well. Other countries, denoted as OC below, send/rec one card. Unless otherwise specified, please send all cards written and stamped, it’s strongly discouraged to ask others to send one card written/unwritten in envelope in routine groups (except for Gotochi and shaped cards), if you have such requests please U2U the other participants directly, although they don’t have to agree, I won’t include it in the thread for you. It’s OK to make such requests in host groups.

For banned users:

We do encourage you to send out your previously owed cards, even though it’s after a while. If there’s any special reasons for not sending out for a long time, we understand everyone has their own situations and welcome you back later.

However, on a case by case basis, please note it may not always be possible to allow you to re-join. We don’t encourage members to think they can disappear for ages without any good reasons thinking they’re able to re-join any time simply by sending out previous card without any further consequences. On the other hand, if you did not send out for a while, you are not following the “be honest” part of the forum rules, allowing you to re-join means I am assisting in your breaching forum rules, which is something I’m not going to do, therefore your re-joining is not always possible as we don’t encourage irresponsible and dishonest behaviour. But if you have a extenuating circumstance, it’s possible to re-join.

Note: Not sending (no matter you’re busy whatsoever) IS intentionally cheating. Like I have mentioned, if you might get busy, then DON’T JOIN!

Refuse to re-send can sometimes be regarded as not sending unless you have official proof of posting from post office.
