The present-day Tottori Plains was a bay in ancient times. During the feudal era, it became a wetland where water birds gathered. Bird hunters (totoribe) gathered on this land. The name "Tottori" is derived from "totoribe." From the Edo Period, Tottori developed as a castle town. Today there still remain many shrines and temples, some of which are designated as important cultural assets by the government. Tottori City is a city of reconstruction which has overcome several disasters such as the Tottori Earthquake in 1943 and the Great Fire of Tottori in 1952. The city is known for the exciting Tottori Shanshan Festival held in summer. In this festival, dancers dance through the city streets with umbrellas in their hands.
