Activities and local products at a premier rest area
Kawaba Denen Plaza Roadside Station is no average rest area. It offers activities such as blueberry picking, pottery throwing, and woodworking. Shops and restaurants sell a wide variety of regional specialties, including craft beer, baked goods, handmade soba noodles, and rice balls made with a prized local rice variety called yukihotaka.
The roadside station is set on grassy grounds surrounding a small lake. Enjoy the scenery with an abundance of outdoor seating.
These attractions have won Kawaba Denen Plaza recognition as one of the region's best roadside stations by outlets such as Nikkei and TripAdvisor.
