At first glance, the ground floor looks like a fairly typical souvenir shop but covers just about all your bases - for starters, they have several varieties of local dried noodles, soy sauces, miso, teas, super cheap vegetables, ceramics, vegetable-dyed scarves, cookies, and some tasty red/black rice. Talk about making souvenir shopping easy!
The second floor is a good place to stop for lunch between visits to the nearby tumulus and a temple. Curry rice is a no-fail option, but their house special is Asuka nabe, which reportedly dates from over 1300 years ago. In its earliest incarnation it reputedly contained milk, honey and miso. It’s a dubious claim to culinary fame for Asuka, but Yume-ichi’s version, chock-full of vegetables with a chicken broth base flavoured with miso and finished with milk, manages to be light, healthy and warming.
The restaurant mainly serves kodaimai (ancient rice) and vegetable dishes using abundantly the ingredients grown in the village. The view of the Ishibutai Park produce the comfortable moment with the green environment and the scent of wood. Inside of the restaurant is filled with calm atmosphere with the tableset made from wood of Asuka. The fresh wind, the rays of sunshine, the seasonal flowers... You can enjoy the seasonal menu with the nature of Asuka.
