Roadside Station Konoka

   Roadside Station Konoka stands along National Road No.194 leading to Saijo City, Ehime Prefecture. It is an excellent station for drivers traveling to Ehime and is also a good starting point for climbers because it is surrounded by the Shikoku mountain range.

   At this roadside station, there is a hotel called “Konoka Onsen” which has all Japanese-style rooms, a restaurant and an onsen (hot spring spa) with an open air bath. The restaurant serves dishes using locally caught fresh wild vegetables and river fish.

   The open air bath provides you a wonderful view especially in the season of colored leaves. A room per night for an adult with dinner and breakfast is available from around ¥7,000. Hotel guests can enter the onsen freely and the bath is also open for day trip visitors for a limited time.
