In the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake, 2011, and the nuclear power plant accident in 2011, this roadside station was established as a convenience store/complex to serve as a base for the reconstruction of the village. Inside the station, the hall is decorated with flower pearls, which are not found in any other roadside stations, making it a relaxing space for visitors. It sells mainly cut flowers, vegetables, and other local produce, as well as liquor and other souvenirs from within the village and prefecture.
