The Tottori Sand Dunes are coastal sand dunes that represent Japan. They’re famous for beautiful wind ripples, and measure sixteen kilometers from east to west and two kilometers from north to south. The San’ in Kaigan Coast features indented coastlines with small bays and capes and peculiar shaped rock formations. The San’ in Kaigan Coast was registered in the UNESCO International Network of Geoparks in 2010. The cavity-shaped islet on the coin has a pine tree at the top.
