The roadside market is where you can take a rest and buy local specialties. The most famous souvenirs sold here are "Meiho Ham" and "Kei Chan" (chicken meat), a homemade-style dish native to Gifu Prefecture.
For foreign tourists who are not allowed to bring meat back to their country, "Meiho Ladies Tomato Sauce" is recommended. The local women use fresh, sweet tomatoes from Gifu to make this homemade tomato sauce with a rich taste. It has been featured many times on TV programs.
This is the rest space called "Surusumi-an" at the roadside market. The sunken hearth was lit from the Chiba family's hearth that kept burning for 800 years.
