The Nango Roadside Station, or Michi-no-Eki Nango, is a great facility to use as a base for touring the Nango area. Fruit-growing is a thriving industry in Nango, and the facility has a plethora of local in-season fruits for sale. Additionally, the station also has great information on several local fruit-picking farms in the area, so you can find out what fruit is in season and where to go try picking it yourself!
The Michi-no-Eki Nango also has a restaurant where you can try local soba (buckwheat noodles). The Nango is a well-known producer of soba, and the noodles at the restaurant are handmade from local buckwheat flour. If you are a real fan of the noodles, or even if you just want to have an interesting cultural experience, we recommend signing up for the station’s soba-making workshop.
Accommodations are also available at the facility, making the Nango Roadside Station a great place to stay if you want to soak up a little bit more of the beautiful scenery than you can in one day.
