The San’in Kaigan Geopark, which includes the San’in Kaigan National Park, spans approximately 120km from Kyotango City(Kyoto Prefecture) in the east,
to Tottori City(Tottori Prefecture) in the west, and extends up to 30km from north to south. It is a member of the Global Geoparks Network.
In the geopark, diverse geological conditions and geological formations, which were formed when the Japanese archipelago was part of the Asian Continent and the Sea of Japan was formed, still exist. People’s cultures and history developed against the backdrop of this multihued nature, and were affected by natural conditions and formations.
