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.
16km long from east to west? doesn't look like that in G/E
