    Wakayama Pref. Tanabeshi Nakahechichouchikatsuyu 2474-1
    "This roadside station on National Route 311 is easily recognizable as the building looks like a big bamboo hanagasa hat. As it faces the Kumano Kodo's Nakahechi Trail, people walking the ancient pilgrimage route stop in for a rest as well those traveling by car. The shop sells a popular item called ""konnyaku inari,"" sushi rice tucked in a slightly spicy konnyaku gelatin pocket, as well as jabara citrus juice and candies that have been featured on television. Their restaurant's ume plum buckwheat soba noodles come recommended."

    I was very happy to come across this rest station where I purchased a cold and refreshing juice while walking to Chikatusyu! Friendly staff. Free parking (for those of you in cars). Just outside...

The sales area is replete with wooden products including tables and chairs, and the restaurant overlooking the Hidaka River serves coffee brewed with spring water. They don’t mind if you bring lunch with you to the facility.

    小規模な道の駅だが周囲には飲食店が少なく、こちらでランチをいただいた。シカやイノシシなどのどんぶりやカレーなどのメニューあり。イノシシカレーを注文、豚よりもコクのある肉が美味しかった。渓流沿いのテラスが気持ち良かった。

    夕方、道の駅に着きまして、何か食べようかと思い、店舗に向かうと、龍神しいたけバーガーのノボリが目に入りました。これだ!と思い、ドアを開けようとしましたが、閉まっていました。時計を見ると5時4分で、4分前の閉店で食べることができず残念でした。
