When traveling to Japan, it can be tempting to just stay within the cities connected by the shinkansen bullet train. But to see some of the truly hidden-treasure remote areas, that requires getting off the trains and doing some good old-fashioned exploring.

One such area is the San’in region, connecting Tottori and Shimane Prefectures on Japan’s southwest coast. In order to entice more tourists from abroad, the YouTube channel San’in Japan recently put out a 4K ultra-HD video showing off the best and most beautiful of the region.

The camera majestically captures the famous sand dunes of Tottori before cruising to the Sea of Japan and weaving between jagged rocks breaching the sapphire blue ocean.

San’in doesn’t limit itself to sand and sea but is also home to breathtaking trees that turn the richest of colors come fall. With the backdrop of Mount Daisen, awesome shots from the coast or from the mountain can be taken in all the seasons.

It’s no surprise that Japanese folks in the past would make the trek out to this remote area. Even now, a rich and vibrant history can be explored in San’in, which includes temple visits, ancient crafting techniques, and preserved sections of town from the Edo Period (1603-1867). No matter if you are visiting in the spring, summer, fall or winter, there's a captivating part of the region that will delight any and all visitors.
