Roadside Station Oyashirazu Pier Park

Michi no Eki Road Station
The Roadside Station Oyashirazu Pier Park is very popular, with the world’s largest bronze statue of a sea turtle (six meters long, five tons in weight) as its symbol, and it sits adjacent to the Jade Furusato Center with a display of enormous jade ores designated as Natural Monuments. Also, there are two excellent restaurants—Restopia with its famous cod soup meal and Oyashirazu mozuku soba, and Gyoka, with fresh food from the ocean and a great view of the Sea of Japan. Two minutes by car via Oyashirazu Interchange on the Hokuriku Expressway.
