We encountered a Koto performance by Tottori University students. Neat. There are some events like this sometime.
Oops. This place is way too relaxing. Do not fall asleep.
Second floor is also open to everyone.
Displays in the exhibition room may vary. We saw paper crafts and miniature houses.
Alright. Let’s call it a day.
How do you find it? It is on the way to Tottori central actually (by public highway). We definitely recommend to stop by. Also there are many cafes in this area.
See you around!
