The Sand Museum In Tottori

Previously, I posted about Japan’s Desert.

Right next to it stands an incredible museum, a sand museum.  DSC09742

Every year, sand artists from around the globe are invited to use the perfect sand of Tottori to carve out magnificent sculptures based on a chosen theme. This year’s theme was the “USA”.

They did everything from the Wild West:

The sand sculptures were incredible.  DSC09776

Afterwards we bought a chocolate shaved ice from a Thailand vendor inside the sand museum and… omg.  I used to say South Korea was king of shaved ice, but step aside South Korea.  You’ve been knocked off your throne because Thailand knows how to do shaved ice.  That was the best I’ve ever had.

Even Trump had a sculpture, but look close at how the artist decorated things.

Highly recommend a visit here if you get a chance.
