Tourists Are Defacing The Tottori Sand Dunes In Japan — & Officials Aren’t Happy

In order to help foreign tourists understand the rules at the dunes, additional signs in English, Chinese, and Korean have been set up at five entrances. “We are concerned about whether the rules are fully understood, but we want to continue to protect views of the beautiful sand dunes,” Tomihisa Ikeuchi, of the prefectural government’s natural green resources division, told the Mainichi Shimbun.
