Famous and Historical Sites
Tottori Toshogu Shrine・Ochidani Park
The shrine was founded by Tottori Domain’s Lord Mitsunaka Ikeda, a great-grandson of Ieyasu Tokugawa, to enshrine the soul of Ieyasu. The soul had originally been enshrined in Nikko Toshogu and was divided for the establishment of Tottori Toshogu Shrine, whose Honden, Haiden, Karamon, and so on are a nationally designated important cultural property. The evergreen forest surrounding the shrine was arranged as a park. In early spring, many tourists visit the park to see Japanese plum flowers of "Bairian", and in early summer, to see fireflies.

Kannonin Temple is one of the Chugoku Kannon holy grounds. Half of its early Edo period’s Chisen-kanshoshiki garden is a natural spring pond. Kannonin Garden is lying still and full of relaxed atmosphere. We recommend you to appreciate this garden, drinking powdered green tea and forgetting the passage of time. This garden is a nationally designated scenic beauty.
