The Hakuto Coast is located about 15 minutes by car from the Tottori Sand Dunes and has a beautiful sandy beach and an impressive view of the ocean stretching to the horizon. The small island on the left as you face the sea is called Okino Island (Okinoshima) and is said to be the place where the White Rabbit had appeared, the rabbit from the Japanese myth "Inaba no Shirouto" (The White Rabbit of Inaba) in the Kojiki. This is a popular date spot for young couples, as the area around the beach is dotted with objects associated with the island and is said to have strong powers related to marriage and love.
