    I came to this market, for a short break and taking some simple meal, as it was around noon time, and they have fish tempura, noodle, bentos... Since I was walking from the furnace, then to the the...

    道の駅はコンパクトですが常温冷凍食品・土産物・女性受けするパックや化粧オイル等、商品バラエティ豊でした。 併設されている松蔭記念館には松蔭神社にも存在する松下村塾の原寸レプリカもあります。塾生の紹介ボードなどなかなかなの展示物があり興味のある人には楽しい場所だと思います。 同じく併設されている橙々亭といううどん屋さんで遅いお昼を頂きましたが、初めて食べる瓦そば・雲丹飯・お値段の割にとっても美味しか...

    車中泊で一日利用しました。 他の方のブログを参考にして治安が良いとのことだったのでここにきめました。 通りに面しているものの静かでした。が、火事があったのか救急車に消防車がたくさん通っててザワザワしてました。 道の駅の施設内は利用してません・・・・

    萩からの帰りに立ち寄りました。小郡萩道路は無料区間なのでICから出てトイレと多少の休憩でまた同じICに戻りました。小郡萩道路にもこの道の駅の案内表示はあり、ICからの距離は短いです。夕方だったので食事処で食事をしている人はいませんでしたが、営業はしていました。隣にスーパーがあるせいか、生鮮品の販売は道の駅としては少ないほうかなと思いました。奈良の大仏の銅を献上した地ということで大仏のモニュメントが...

Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
