A toll road service area in Yorii, Saitama has had a makeover to make it look and feel like a provincial French village, complete with buildings and food an amazing transformation. It will be a wonderful surprise for summer trip makers this season and we think a very innovative idea. You can easily go to France on your weekend when you escape Tokyo by bike.

Its great for motorcyclists too as it makes your traditional rest more relaxing. Adds fun, adds variety of the food you can eat and makes a pleasant change. A great chance to take some interesting photos & to chat with locals and fellow riders.
