In the spring of 2024, "Nariishi Beach Sauna" opened in Kotoura, Tottori Prefecture, which is attracting attention as a thriving sauna town! The sauna is conveniently located within walking distance to Nariishi Beach, a popular seaside attraction for tourists. The private sauna, which can be booked for two and half hours each morning and afternoon, can be enjoyed by groups of up to five people with reservations.


A sauna surrounded by the sea breeze on Nariishi Beach

Ever since the Finnish-style sauna "Nature Sauna" opened in 2020 in Daisen-Oki National Park on the mountain side of Kotoura, sauna enthusiasts from all over Japan have visited the region to enjoy a special experience in the great outdoors. In contrast to the "Nature Sauna" located in the campground in the mountains, here at Nariishi Beach you can experience a sauna in the beach, surrounded by the sea breeze. The fee is 4,000 yen for up to 5 people and is intended to be used together with family members or friends. We offer new ways to enjoy saunas, such as a drive to visit both saunas and "sauna meals" to fully enjoy the natural bounty of the mountains and the sea.


1 Nariishi Beach, a famous sightseeing spot by the sea

Nariishi Beach is a natural beach covered with round, oval-shaped stones, which became well-known because of the mysterious sound they make on windy days when they collide with each other due to waves. Along with its beautiful scenery that changes from season to season, it is also considered a place of good fortune because of its name, which means "to bring good luck" in Japanese.

2 Rent a car and take a drive between the ocean and the mountains.

If you are visiting from far away and are considering renting a car, how about renting a convertible in which you can enjoy an extraordinary sense of freedom? You can rent a car at Akasaki Daihatsu, a car dealership that is located by Nariishi Beach, and it takes about 30 minutes by car from Nariishi Beach to Ikkoganaru, where you can enjoy the view and a nice breeze, perfect for a sauna trip.

3 Satisfy your appetite with a "Kotoura sauna meal".

There are many delicious restaurants in Kotoura, where you can enjoy both the mountains and the sea. The Kotoura sauna meal map, which introduces gourmet foods recommended by the Sauna Department of the Kotoura Town Hall, is packed with information on everything from the famous beef bone broth ramen, fresh seafood, and local sweets. Going by car will also allow you to enjoy a much wider range of activities for eating and walking.
