The 6th annual World Trails Conference (WTC) will be held in Japan’s Tottori Prefecture this weekend, from October 14th through the 17th. The conference is being held outside of Korea for the first time since its inception. First created through the efforts of the Jeju Olle Foundation in 2010, this event has grown to become one of the world’s premier gatherings of trail enthusiasts from across the globe and members of the international trails industry coming together to promote, expand, and celebrate the benefits of walking tied to health, tourism, and nature.

The main events begin on Saturday, October 15th, with an opening ceremony at Kurayoshi’s Mirai Chūshin and a keynote speech by Mr. Yuichiro Miura, followed by various breakout sessions.

Additionally, the Tottori World Walking Festival will be held as a concurrent event with the conference, with an array of courses to choose from- each featuring the natural beauty of the Japanese countryside and the unique charm of its people and towns.

Come and join us at Yurihama’s ground golf course Shiokaze no Oka Tomari on Sunday, October 2nd, for a day full of ground golf, fun, and new friends!

GG Open Flyer

Ground golf is like a mix between croquet and mini-golf, making it a fantastic way to mingle with friends and new acquaintances while you get some fresh air and exercise. It is simple enough that beginners can quickly catch on, but still challenging enough to whip up your competitive spirit!

For those new to Tottori, this is a great way to get to know the area and to make new friends! There are shuttle buses available from Tottori Station, Yonago Station, and in front of TPIEF’s Kurayoshi office, so there is no need to worry about transportation! However, if you drive, there is also parking available at the venue.

 It is only 1000 yen to attend (includes lunch and souvenirs) and free rental gear is available! There is also time to practice and learn the rules before the start of the tournament.
