Japanese comedian Tetsuo of the duo Warai Meshi teamed up with Katoh Appli and Yurihama’s Panini bakery to bring you the Waraeru Nashi Shirizu (Laughable Pear Series), a tasty line of treats made with a delightfully silly combination of puns and flavor.

While Yurihama is known for a wide variety delicious and juicy fruits, the area is especially famous for its pears, or nashi in Japanese.

湯梨浜町紹介:Places to Stay Part 1

2018.05.21 (Mon)


Looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities and usual tourist destinations in Japan? We invite you to consider an excursion to the Japanese countryside, where you can immerse yourself in a truly authentic and unique experience.

Located in the middle of Japan’s Tottori Prefecture along the Sea of Japan, the beautiful town of Yurihama offers access to the sea, mountains, as well as traditional Japanese landscapes. Visitors can also enjoy the local walking resort, onsen hot springs and footbaths, the locally developed life-long sport ground golf, local temples and power spots, dazzling night sky, fresh and delicious cuisine, as well as interacting with the warm and welcoming local residents.

Yurihama further serves as a convenient midway point between other attractions in the prefecture, including the Tottori Sand Dunes and Sand Museum, Mizuki Shigeru Road, Uradome Coast, Pear Museum, Tottori Hanakairo Flower Park, Mt. Daisen and the Mt. Mitoku Sanbutsu Temple.

Below are some of the wonderful accommodations available to choose from for your stay.

We invite you to come and take advantage of all the books and resources available at the local public library- as well as its extensive network with other public libraries throughout the prefecture!

All visitors are welcome to use Yurihama’s libraries during its operating hours; however, a library card is required to check out any books or materials (this can be used at the Hawai Reading Room located in Hawai Elementary School as well as the Tomari Shiosai Plaza). Visitors may borrow up to 10 books or magazines for 2 weeks and returns may be made at the book-drop found outside each location or at the counter. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please inquire with the staff- they will be happy to check with the other libraries, including Tottori Prefectural Library, for you.

There are also various read-alouds and other fun activities held each month, so be sure to check the monthly Yurihama newsletter (広報ゆりはま) for further details on upcoming events!
