Roadside Station Kanra道の駅 甘楽

Michi no Eki Road Station

This roadside station is located in Kanra Town, on Prefectural Route 46’s Tomioka Kanna Line. It is near the entrance of the castle town of Obata, and can be easily accessed from the Joshin-etsu Expressway or National Route 254. The Momotaro Meal, which uses the local specialty pheasant meat and Mochi Kibi is famous and is very popular as a set meal and as a lunch box meal. The shop sells local agricultural products and processed goods, as well as wine and other goods imported directly from its Italian sister city. The nearby thatched house is the relocated and restored residence of Matsui family, the Edo Period Village Chief. It is free to enter and is often used as a rest area.

Our very first night/trip on a campervan. So were having lots of question about sleeping in a carpark in japan. Well, first, we arrive in the road station after sundown, so was not about to see...

すぐ側には楽山園、小幡城跡・小幡陣屋、小幡の中小路と武家屋敷、松平家大奥、松浦氏屋敷、甘楽総合公園などが集中する雄川沿いの素敵な地域で、翌朝に富岡製糸場見学前に行きました。 早朝だったので入場できない場所もありましたが、ぶらっと散歩するには非常に良い場所でした。

          Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
