    車でドライブ中に立ち寄りました。 道の駅特有の売店とレストランなどあります。 レストランのメニューも魅力的でした。 残念ながら食事したばかりなので、今回は見送りました。 奥の最上川には、ヤナの仕掛けがありましす。残念ながら、時期ではないので、仕掛けはセットされていませんでした。 売店では鮎の塩焼き600円で売ってます。

    長井の国道287号線(長井街道)沿いにある道の駅で、広い駐車場に食堂、お土産売り場があります。 ちょうど桜の頃(4月20日過ぎ)に訪れましたが、最上川堤防の千本桜に隣接していて、便利でした。 お土産コーナーには山形のお土産や地元でとれた農産物などが並び、行者ニンニクなどの山菜類は山間の街らしい感じがしました。 観光案内所もあって、各種パンフレットや観光名所を映し出したモニターがありますが、こちらの...

    国道113号沿いの道の駅で新潟方面へ向かうのであれば、その先にも道の駅や店はありますが、山形方面へ向かう場合は立ち寄っておいた方が良いと思います。 (雪が多い冬場は特に) 山菜うどんや山菜の販売が中心ですが、名物の玉こんにゃくやアユの塩焼きが売られています。 ここで「おおっ!」となるのはアユの大きさ。 全国の色々な道の駅でもアユやイワナ、ヤマメなどの塩焼きが売られていますが、ここのアユは大きく感じ...

    Yamagata Yonezawa-shi Kawai 1039-1

    9時開店のこぎれいな道の駅で、地元および地元以外の農産物から、米沢牛、お菓子類、酒類など何でもそろいます。トイレもきれいで、イートインも充実。使い勝手もよい。ただ、山形県内には道の駅が非常に多いのですが、その中では値段はそう安くないかもしれません。

    Yamagata Nishiokitama-gun Iidemachi Matsubara 1898

    農産物の種類がおおく、とても安く買えます。レストランも充実、お酒やお菓子等も買えます。ただ他の道の駅とくらべると、やや市場的というか、整然としている感じではないです。

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.
