Road Station (道の駅） near Izu Villa
Road Station (道の駅） In Japan, we have many road stations called "Michi no Eki" or "Road Station". It has many shopping stores , restaurants and of-course large parking area. My wife and I visited a station near Izu Villa called Mura-no-Eki (村の駅）and bought many fruits and vegetables - mainly produced by the local farmers. We also bought eggs which was a little expensive but the egg was produced by the hens eating paprika and oyster's shell raised freely under the mineral rich red cray of Hakone mountain.
