Other: Useful Information

There is a direct sales shop (Fureai Farm Yoshino) near Hitachi-Konosu Station that sells NAKA vegetables and a restaurant specializing in fresh pasta that is attached to the direct store.

If you are a soba noodle eater at the main restaurant, you probably won’t be hungry for fresh pasta, but if you are not, I recommend it because the fresh pasta is delicious and fresh Naka vegetables are sold there.
