Bathing facilities around
Unfortunately, there are no bathing facilities at this facility, so please use the nearby hot spring facilities. There are two places near me, so I will introduce them.
The first place I would like to introduce is “Natural hot spring Aquas“is. This is a 100% free-flowing hot spring and has a reputation as a “beauty hot spring”. There is not only a hot spring here, but also a heated pool, and the pool uses natural hot springs! Your skin will be smooth just by swimming.
In addition, it is a very complete facility with a massage corner, a rest area, and a restaurant.

Kyushu’s number one mushroom producing area
Mushroom cultivation is actively carried out in Oki-cho, taking advantage of its blessed nature and clean water, and the amount of mushroom production is the largest in Kyushu! Each farmer lovingly grows the original fungus that was developed independently.
When you come to Michi-no-Eki Ooki, you definitely want to try the mushroom dishes that Oki Town is proud of. You can enjoy local mushrooms in restaurants and markets.
Mushrooms are not only delicious, but they also have many health benefits, such as preventing cancer and improving bowel movements. It’s low calorie, so you can eat as much as you want! Let’s eat a lot and be healthy.
Restaurant “Deli & Buffet Kururun”
The restaurant serves buffets for both lunch and dinner. We have healthy dishes that incorporate fresh vegetables and rice from Oki-cho, country cuisine, home cooking, and a little stylish Italian.
It is irresistible for mushroom lovers. Enoki udon, which uses enoki mushrooms as noodles, is healthy and delicious. Sweets were also substantial and full of women’s favorites.
Saturdays and Sundays are often crowded, but weekdays are relatively empty, so try to visit on weekdays.
Deli & Buffet Kururun
Fees: Adults (junior high school students and older) 1,450 yen, 70 years old and older 1,100 yen, elementary school students 900 yen, infants 500 yen, children under 3 free
“Kururun Dream Market”
At the Kururun Market, you can find a wide variety of seasonal ingredients, mainly Oki Town specialties and mushrooms.
The most popular among them is the mushroom picking experience that you can do at the “Mushroom Picking Gallery”. When you enter the gallery of mushrooms, there are many mushrooms lined up. You can choose your favorite mushrooms from among them, pick them off and buy them.
The prices are very reasonable: eryngii 100 yen, shimeji mushrooms 100 yen, enoki mushrooms 150 yen, and numerisugitake mushrooms 130 yen. You can get fresh mushrooms in larger quantities and cheaper than buying them at supermarkets.
Also, some products are 50% off from 17:00, so it’s especially recommended in the evening. Please note that popular items sell out quickly.
