Now highway rest stops in Japan have been developed significantly, they are not places where people just rest on the way to their destination! You may think that all highway rest stops in Japan are pretty much the same? WRONG! They offer distinct services, and sell local food and original products to attract people (they are fun and exciting places). Therefore, some people plan to go to rest stops as their DESTINATION!
Japanese people call highway rest areas “service areas”(SA). Due to media coverage on unique service areas, they have become even more popular. SA business has been growing and becoming more competitive to create a product that will satisfy their customers. Customers are always happy to experience their new services and products. SA contribute to make our road journey much more fun!
