Welcome to the pit stop of dreams!

One of the best parts about driving in Japan is getting to stop at all of the michi-no-eki. These roadside rest areas commonly have cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops, sparkling-clean bathrooms, and anything else you may need to feel refreshed during a long journey. What’s more, every michi-no-eki has a completely different aesthetic, concept, and charm that is often tied to the characteristics of that particular region

Located near the crystal-clear Shimanto River in western Kochi, Michi-no-Eki Yotte Nishi-Tosa offers great insight into what roadside rest areas are all about. Home to seasonal produce, freshly-grilled wild ayu (sweetfish), a pastry shop serving homemade cakes, a riverside barbecue area and more, the concept of this particular roadside rest area is ‘tennen’ (all-natural). Here, you can certainly count on quality

If you ever get to do a road trip in Japan, I highly recommend keeping an eye out for michi-no-eki along the way! At least for me, exploring the variety of michi-no-eki is always just as fun as reaching my destination
