Hamamatsu Service Area

新東名高速のSA、浜松(上り線)です。一目瞭然ですが、テーマは「音楽」です♪ 中にはヤマハの自動ピアノがあり、バーチャルコンサートを毎日やっているようです。残念ながら夜に着いてしまい、演奏は全部終わってしまいました。今度こそ!新東名のSAって広くて快適で面白いテーマを持って楽しい場所ですね^^

The service areas (parking areas or rest stops) along the newly-opened Shin-Tomei Expressway are really fun. They’re not only spacious and clean, but also have different themes. This one’s the Hamamatsu Service Area leading to Tokyo. The theme’s “Music” so there’s piano-like lighting on the roof (the colors of the keys change every now and then!). Inside, along with the usual restaurants and souvenir shops, is a Yamaha automated piano. Unfortunately, we arrived at night and the daily “virtual concerts” were all finished. Hope to get to hear one the next time around! :)

Have a good night/day, everyone!

    It would be nice if they piano keys outside seemed to play music!

      Hehe! Yes, I was thinking of something more interactive. Something like if you stand beneath a key the roof would play the sound of that key, so if you jump about you can actually make music :)
