Running along the urban-natural beauty of the Sakaisuido Strait, Japan’s coastal city of Sakaiminato is one that offers a diverse pallet of local culture. Most cruise ships arrive to Sakaiminato Port, a bustling area with idyllic waterfront restaurants looking out at ferries traveling. The modern port terminal is also covered with odd art and murals, as well as efficient amenities like a tourist information center with brochures on things to do and attached access to the Sakaiminato Train Station’s Blue Sakai Line. Besides public transportation, guests can choose from a myriad of private transfer options ranging from the compact efficiency of sedans and SUVs, to larger chartered buses and vans especially perfect for big groups in search of it all. Meet-and-greet services make seeing the city’s vast layout much easier through rides like taxis offering helpful drop offs into town as well as local personal drivers aware of cool hidden corners.
Cruise tourists can easily access a myriad of local wonders just out of arm’s reach from the port, and a bit into the lush foothills of the outskirts. Upon arrival, take a quick tour of the port-side Mizuki Shigeru Road, a street lined with odd statues leading up to the Yokai Shrine’s vivid shinto-inspired architecture. Several blocks east along the same road is the Mizuki Shigeru Museum, a space filled with modern art and admirable places to chat. Seek genuine moments by continuing beyond the city toward quiet oases, worthy options including the grassy steps that lead up to the top of Yonago Castle Ruin’s coastline views from high clearings, afterward walking through the Yonago City Museum of Art’s beautiful showcase of modern works; and by far the most rewarding landmark of the entire region awaits in the hilltop gardens of Tottori Flower Park. When returning to port, stop by Kaigan for easy-to-access seafood and memorable sunsets.
