    大石田駅内に「大石田駅観光案内」がありますよ。 ちょっとしたお土産物屋、休憩所も兼ねていますね。なお、大石田駅は電車の本数も少なく、周辺もこれといった休憩場所、喫茶店もないので、休憩するには非常に助かった覚えがあります。

Yamagata Areas

around-area-map

Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
