The Recommended Free-&-Easy Autumn Trip to Tohoku - "Michi-no-Eki" Introduction (from Fukushima to Niigata)

October 21, 2018

In addition to the series of my earlier blogs on my recommended free-&-easy autumn trip from Tokyo to Tohoku region, I would like to introduce my recommended stopover on the local roads for tea-break, resting, shopping, eating and others. They are normally called in Japan as "Michi-no-Eki" which is meant for the resting spot located along with the main countryside roads in any places in Japan.



Some of the Michi-no-Eki have multiple-purposed facilities including the hot-spring baths, the playground, outdoor activities, fruit picking other than the normal services.



If you plan to drive for your free-&-easy trip in Japan, I would like to highly recommend you to visit the different "Michi-no-Eki stations" at the different locations during your trip.
