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.
