Roadside Station: Wadaura WA∙O!

Roadside Station: Wadaura WA∙O!
道の駅 和田浦 WA・O!

HIGHLIGHT: The newest of Minamiboso’s Roadside Stations, this whale-themed destination is fitting for Wada, home to the only whaling port in the Kanto region. WaO! has a shopping area for souvenirs, including fresh and processed whale meat you can try cooking at home. If you’re not feeling that adventurous, visit their restaurant where you can try many local seafood specialties like namero and sangayaki. In addition, learn about the long history of whaling in Japan, a once prominent aspect of Japanese culture that is now becoming harder to come across.

RECOMMENDED: In addition to trying out whale cuisine like tatsuta-age (marinated then fried) or whale bacon, try some peanut soft-serve from the take-out area to finish off your meal.
