Japanese Highway Superb Rest Stops (Service Areas)
We have had some great times at the rest stops, or service areas, as they call them, along Japan's highways. Most people make the restroom their first stop. They are super clean with plenty of stalls at all times--no waiting. You can see if the toilet is in use by green and red lights outside the stall, much like parking places at the Portland Airport. The sinks are well stocked with soap, and lots of the super fast hand drying blowers. Then there are all sorts of great shops and restaurants reasonably priced and fast. You can even figure out how to flush the toilets.
