Michi-no-eki (Roadside Station)

During the WWI, captured German soldiers were kept in Bando POW camp. The former camp was renovated into German Village Park. Michi-no-eki is added in the park and named as Daiku no Sato (Home of #9) since Beethoven’s Symphony #9 was played first in Naruto City of all Asia.

The building for Bussankan was part of the barrack in the reformer Bando POW camp, which is a national tangible cultural asset, In this historical building, you can shop Tokushima’s specialties such as citrus, sweet potatoes, and other seasonal produces, sweets and other souvenir items.
