Kyoto by the Sea

UNESCO San’in Kaigan Global Geopark

Stretching from Kyoto through northern Hyogo, Tottori, and parts of Shimane Prefectures, this UNESCO Global Geopark is a geologist’s dream. But even for those less enthusiastic about rocks, there are some pretty amazing reasons to visit this incredible area. The Kyoto portion of this geopark is located in Kyotango, an area well-known throughout Japan for its unparalleled quality of seafood, silk heritage, and stunning beaches.
