A Roadside station offering a farming and forest experience, dog park, hot spring, pool, and accommodation.

Roadside station

Roadside stations throughout Japan are popular as places to rest from driving and purchasing local products and souvenirs. Utsunomiya Romantic Village is not only a regular roadside station but also a farm park where you can enjoy a farming experience, playing in the forest, a dog park, a hot spring, a swimming pool, and accommodation facilities!

This vast 46-hectare site is divided into three areas.
The first part is the "Village Area." The "Aozora-kan" sells locally grown agricultural products and souvenirs. The restaurant serves food made with local ingredients and original local beer made with Utsunomiya's two-row barley. The glass-walled "Rose Hut" is used as a multipurpose hall for various events, and the "Villa de Agri” has 10 rooms for overnight stays.

In the “Forest Area,” there is a walking path where you can enjoy the seasonal scenery of wildflowers, deciduous and broad-leaved forests. Their outdoor park has ziplines, monkey bars, and swings for children to enjoy. The "Rural Area" is a play and learning space with seasonal flower gardens, a hands-on farm, and a vast plaza with a dog run.

Many events are also held throughout the year, making this a great place to enjoy an array of activities.
