Yoshima Parking Area
A highway rest stop with a spectacular view of the Seto Inland Sea and the impressive Great Seto Bridge.
The Yoshima Parking Area is located in the middle of the oversea section of the Seto-Chuo Expressway. From the area, you can enjoy a truly splendid view of the Great Seto Bridge, which connects Honshu and Shikoku islands. The area contains a large food court with varied and interesting souvenir kiosks, and a terrific noodle shop Kakehashi-yume-udon which serves Kagawa prefecture’s specialty noodle, Sanuki Udon; served with various delicious tempura toppings. From the observation deck on the rooftop, there is an expansive and beautiful view of the islands in the Seto Inland Sea, amplified by the graceful passing of ships across the calm waters.
In the area, there are many other interesting spots as well, such as the second observation deck where you can look up at the magnificent Great Seto Bridge, relaxing a while open fields with sprawling lawns, and visiting a giant sundial. You can definitely spend some fun extra time in this expansive parking area.
