This is one of my favorite roadside stops. When you are driving to the outer islands, reachable by car, it is one of the last places you will see, with so many conveniences. There is room for hundreds of vehicles in the parking lot and it is a great place to get out and stretch your legs. Restrooms are always neat and clean, there is a nice view of the ocean and, inside you will find shops that don't have the outrageous prices seen at most tourist attractions. The Steak House Ayahashi serves a delicious, buffet-style steak dinner that is tender and filling. At 1300 Yen, I was surprised when the waitress asked if we wanted second helpings. I highly recommend a visit, here, to any of my friends driving to or from the islands of Henza, Miyagi, Hamahiga or Ikei.
