  • Drive-in Nanakoshi
    Transportation
    Gunma Pref. Fujiokashi Kamiochiai 838
    "A 24-hour rest area located close to the Nanakoshiyama kofun burial mound, a designated Important Cultural Property situated on the outskirts of Fujioka City. Interestingly, instead of a diner style restaurant typical of Japanese ""drive-in"" rest areas, the facility is filled with retro hot food vending machines which cook your food to order, and visitors can find examples of each of the ""big three"" retro hot food vending machine varieties: noodles, toast, and hamburgers. Vending machine enthusiasts travel from around the country to try these machines and the rest area has also famously been used as a shooting location for films and television dramas. The rest area's chashu noodles, made with home crafted chashu roast pork, are popular with many, even excluding the novelty of the fact they come out of a vending machine."
