Michi No Eki (Roadside Stations)

There are certain facility and service requirements a roadside station must offer as a rest stop. The parking lot must be free, have enough space for a large number of vehicles, and must be available 24/7. Restrooms must include those for physically-handicapped people and must be available 24/7. Telephones also must be available 24/7. In principle, it should have someone on duty who answers questions/gives local information.

As facilities focusing on its locality, roadside stations offer a variety of services centering on linking the local area and travelers, including events related to the local culture and history. Each roadside station has its own unique characteristics. Many have restaurants and sell special products. Some have a park and even a museum.
