Roadside station “Taneyamagahara Poran”

Sumita Town


Taneyamagahara, also called Mt. Mt. Mt. Miyazawa, is a plateau that Kenji Miyazawa loved very much. Kenji wrote ``Night on the Galactic Railway'' and ``Kaze no Matasaburo'', as well as many poems and tanka, based on the scenery and weather here. Roadside Station Taneyamagahara Poran is located near the entrance to Taneyamagahara, which is located at a relay point on National Route 397 that connects the southern part of the prefecture with the coast. The rest facility "Poran" is designed to resemble a star, and was built by Kesen carpenters who are proud of their traditional skills using wood sourced within the town. It is a great place to find souvenirs, with a variety of specialty products grown in the rich natural environment.
