For my first rainy day in Tottori, I went to Jinpukaku mansion. Jinpukaku is a Western-style French Renaissance style residence of the Ikeda clan during the Edo period. During the Meiji period, the place was one of the affected areas of the modernization policies and was destroyed. But it is now restored and and became a museum open for locals and tourists for them to see what’s inside the mansion. By the way, if you are a fan of Rurouni Kenshin movie, one of their shooting locations was done in the gardens of Jinpukaku.
From Tottori station, take the Kururi bus Green Course and get off at Jinpukaku-mae (#12 stop).
