Introduction to Miyama Fureai Hiroba
Miyama Fureai Hiroba is a roadside station located in the mountains of Kyoto.
Soft-serve ice cream and milk are its specialties.
If you like milk, you can buy some to take home as a souvenir and drink the very tasty milk.
There is a rider’s cafe called “Zero-Base" right next to the Miyama Fureai Hiroba.
ZERO-BASE is a café where you can eat and drink, and there is a car wash and pit space outside.
There is also a car wash area and a pit space outside, where you can wash and pit your car for free.
I will introduce ZERO-BASE in a separate article.
When you go to the Miyama Fureai Hiroba, there will be many riders nearby, so please ask them, “Where is ZERO-BASE? Please ask them.
Miyama Fureai Hiroba is located on Route 162, which leads northward into Fukui Prefecture.
If you go south on Route 162, you will pass through Arashiyama and reach the city center.
If you go south on Kyoto Prefectural Road No. 19, you will go toward Osaka.
If you choose another road and go northwest, you can visit Maizuru and Amanohashidate.
Each of these roads is a winding road with its own characteristics and is very comfortable.
If you want to go to Kyoto from Osaka, it would be a fun touring experience if you use Miyama Fureai Hiroba as a turnaround point.
Maps and distances, etc.
The distance from the foot of the mountain to the Miyama Fureai Hiroba is quite long, so it will take at least an hour to get there.
If you take Route 162, the area around Arashiyama is a traffic jam point.
It may be a little far, but be sure to check the location with your navigation system.
When going south, if you choose “Kyoto Prefectural Route 19" to enter the Osaka area, there are many detailed roads, making it difficult for those who do not know how to navigate.
In terms of difficulty, it is easier to take Route 162 through the urban area of Kyoto and enter Osaka.
If you choose to take Kyoto Prefectural Route 19, the better choice is to take Route 423.
If you take Route 423, you will enter an area called Toyono-cho in Osaka.
If you enter Minoh City from Toyono Town, you will be in a position to easily access the major cities of Osaka.
If you proceed to the northwest, north, and southeast of Kyoto, you will find sightseeing spots respectively.
Wherever you choose, there are touring spots for motorcycles.
Lake Biwa is located to the southeast.
Lake Biwa is a famous touring road for bicycles.
It is also famous for motorcycles.
However, no matter where you proceed, you will need a little bit of time.
Therefore, if you are not used to mountain roads, it may be difficult to go to each sightseeing spot because you may need more time.
If you go back and forth several times and get used to the road, you will be able to go to each sightseeing spot without getting lost.
We often use highways to get to major tourist spots, but if you are a rider who knows the roads of Japan, you have to choose these mountain roads (laughs).
We are riders who choose mountain roads over highways, so I would like to recommend mountain roads to everyone.
We are riders who prefer mountain roads to highways, so we would like to recommend mountain roads to you as well, and we hope you will make the trip back and forth several times to get to know the roads.
