    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...

Yamaguchi Areas

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.
