Kotobuki Castle is located at the base of the Daisen National Park. This castle was modeled after Yonago Castle. Sweets Castle Kotobuki-jo has a magnificent keep that looks just like the real one. Inside the mock castle, there are places to shop, rest, eat, watch, and learn. There are stores selling Sanin specialty snacks and seafood items, a café and take-out corner for taking a rest, an exhibition hall overlooking the Sea of Japan and Mt. Daisen, a factory observation hall to watch Japanese sweets being made, and an exhibit corner to learn about the history of the Sanin region and Yonago Castle. Look out for tochi mochi, famous local confectionary made with Japanese horse chestnuts and red bean paste. Please stop by for a memorable experience during your trip.
