Roadside Station Kawauchiko (道の駅 かわうち湖)
Located next to the Kawauchi Dam and Lake Kawauchi, considered one of the 100 most beautiful dam lakes in the country, this is the northernmost roadside station on the island of Honshu. The facility has a restaurant where you can eat keiran sweet bean paste-filled rice cakes and other local dishes as well as soba noodles and cuisine made with highland vegetables and other local ingredients. There's also an observatory and a shop selling local specialty products from Kawauchi Town. The surrounding area is maintained as a nature park called Lakeside Park built around Kawauchi Dam, and here you can enjoy beautifully seasonal natural scenery.
