Nature created the « Tottori Sand Dunes, » a formative beauty created over the years.
We want to create an unprecedented creative man-made beauty here and to excite and impress people who visit this site.
This desire came to life as the « Sand Museum » which opened at the Tottori Sand Dunes on November 18, 2006.
The museum is Japan’s only open-air museum exhibiting sculptures made of « sand. » Katsuhiko Chaen, who is now active domestically and abroad as a sand sculptor and producer, is attracting attention as one of « 100 Japanese individuals the world respects, » is the executive producer of the museum. The highest level of sand sculptures in the world are exhibited every year, inviting sandsculptors from around the world.
Sand sculptures eventually collapse as the material is sand. You can see for a brief time, in that place. The transience is the attraction and beauty of sand sculpture.
