Wild Boar Croquettes at Kiyozawa no Sato Road Station in Shizuoka City!

Yesterday I was cycling along the Warashina River at already quite some altitude in search of Aihama Shirahige Shrine when I reached a place called Kiyozawa No Sato Road Station.
Sato means village, hometown, etc. and Kiyozawa is the name of the area.
Road Stations is a Japanese concept meaning local shops basically serving and selling products!
