One cannot miss this tourism spot at the entrance to the Oga Pennisula where two 15-meter high giant statues of Namahage, local ogres, are guarding its entrance. In addition to personalized tourism information from the staff, pamphlets of each area of the site are also available. A computer is also set up at the computer corner for instant information retrieval about the Oga area, while a video presentation of local events and tourist sites is also continuously playing on a screen to inform the visitors about the area. There are local specialty items for sale, and one can stop and enjoy a light meal at the cafe, or visit the outdoor stage and flower garden.
