Travel Haiku - Japan Outdoor Sand Museum


Japan Sand Museum
history abundant as
the grain at our feet

Japan Sand Museum
knowledge abundant
as the grain under out feet

Japan Sand Museum
how high history can pile up
without a word uttered

Japan Sand Museum
a piece of Asian history
written with sand

Japan Sand Museum
grainy lessons in
Asian history

Japan Sand Museum
swift as our feet
a piece of Asian history

Although a country of islands, Japan's only sand dunes are located on the western coast of Tottori. The 131-foot peaks of the dunes rival the impressive exhibits at the area's outdoor Sand Museum, where visitors can take a tour of Asia, and specifically the continent's UNESCO World Heritage Sites, from the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor in China to the Buddha Statues of the Bamiyan Valley, Afghanistan.
