Completed on April 19, 2015, Tango Kingdom "Shoku-no-Miyako" is one of the largest roadside stations in Western Japan, and is very different from conventional rest-stop facilities.
The market area is filled with fresh vegetables and seafood, while restaurants feature local ingredients from the farms and coastline of the Tango Peninsula. It is the place to enjoy authentic Tango food products.
There are also more than 60 animals in the park, and fun attractions for young and adult such as a grass slide and go-karts. At night you can enjoy the largest illuminated promenade in North Kinki featuring a million electric lights. The roadside station even includes a hotel with a hot spring spa.
What is Tango Kingdom and
who are the princesses?
Tango Kingdom refers to an ancient name for this region. In addition to being a rice producing region and a cradle of rice cultivation in Japan, Tango has a rich history and is known for seven women who are celebrated historical figures.
These women have come to symbolize the region as the Seven Princesses of Tango. Now with the revival of the Tango's ancient name after a period of 1,300 years, the Tango region is being promoted in cooperation with Tango Kingdom "Shoku-no-Miyako."
Enjoy your visit to this roadside attraction filled with many tastes and charms of Tango!
