Roadside Station Okuoi Otogi no Sato道の駅奥大井音戯の郷

Michi no Eki Road Station

A roadside station in Kawanehon Cho, Haibara County, Shizuoka Prefecture. As Okuoi's entranceway to the Southern Japan Alps it serves as a tourist information spot as well as a rest area for drivers. Their shop sells local specialty products, and there is a playful hands-on museum and a sensory experience gym that will let you use all five senses. The Oigawa railway runs right by, and the sound of the whistles of their steam engines echoing among the foothills of the Southern Alps was chosen as one of Japan's top 100 most nostalgic sounds.

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
