Higashi Mikawa area used to be called Honokuni. Although the area is located in Aichi Prefecture, it has an appeal different from the Owari and Nishi Mikawa areas.
The area is famous for Toyokawa Inari, one of Japan's three major Inari (originally a god of harvests, later worshipped as the guardian deity of an area), and melon picking.
Moreover, many scenic beauty spots, such as natural park, Koijigahama, and Irago Cape, are in the area!
- Wi-Fi can be used for free on Kanto Bus.
