Are the dunes a new contest picture?
If so, I guess (much to Zanshin's dismay): Tottori-sakyu Sand Dunes, located in the eastern Tottori, are the largest sand hills in Japan. They are 16 kilometers long from east to west and 2 kilometers wide from north to south. Volcanic ash from Mt. Daisen settled on the sand of the Sendai-gawa River, and the ocean winds that blew from the rough Sea of Japan formed the dunes over a period of almost 100,000 years.
