We liked stopping here on the way to Iwamura. The views of the area were pretty, the demonstration wheel is huge and the adjoining shop has local produce and specialties for sale at very reasonable...

Fantastic nature experience with a giant water-wheel and friendly helpers. The lunch sets and ice cream are nutritious and budget-friendly. Lots of produce souvenir shopping!
Reviewed:2021/05/09 日本一の水車
観覧車かと見紛うような巨大な水車がある道の駅です。横にはダムがあり見下ろすように景色が楽しめます。道の駅としては規模は大きくなく野菜などは少なかったですが煮豆や巻き寿司等手作りの惣菜類が充実していました。

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
