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.
Fresh vegetables and fruits, popular Asuka-mai (Asuka rice) and Kodaimai (ancient rice), specially processed food, and handmade goods - we have many intriguing items you might want to take a look at!
As the souvenir shop of Asuka, as well as the center of Asuka's sightseeing, we are waiting for your visit! Also, we have the rural restaurant "Yumeichi-chaya" on the second floor.
