Roadside Station Myoe Furusato-Kan道の駅 明恵ふるさと館
This roadside station on National Route 480 is about a 15-minute drive from the Arida Interchange. The station’s name derives from the prominent Kegon Buddhist priest Myoe syonin of the Kegon school’s Kankiji Temple who was born in Aridagawa Town (former Kanaya-machi). Besides the array of local produce available at the Kanaya Farm Stand, they sell processed products that make perfect souvenirs like Kinzanji-miso, handmade soy sauce, and dressing. Fresh baked bread from the Furusato Bakery is made with natural yeast and pure water from the Arida River. The bread is delicious the next day, too.

Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east.
