Local foods of Ashimori

'Ashimori melon' is a specialty of this region.
It’s known for its fresh aroma and good taste

So, shall we try it

We visited a café ‘Koan chaya’ that offers some sweets made of Ashimori melon.
The café is located on the ground floor of ‘Ashimori plaza’, and it takes about 2min on foot from ‘the residence of Fujita Sennenji’.

I also found Ashimori melon ice cream in the menu, although it was sold out already.

Next, we headed for the sweets shop ‘Famille’ in Yasutomi farm
It offers freshly-made gelato (Italian-style ice cream) 
Besides, the gelato is made from fresh milk every morning, and it doesn’t contain any food additives.

It takes about 7min by car from Ashimori plaza. 


To get to the farm, drive through a residential area, and when you see those signboards, turn right.
Then, you can find the sweets shop there.

Let’s go inside


There is a choice of 22 different flavours such as chocolate, vegetables and fruits in season. What’s more, those fruits are produced in local area.

Apparently, the shop offers more than 100 flavours in total all year round

All of them seem to be good… I can’t make up my mind


Eventually, I chose seasonal recommendations, Ashomori melon and yuzu (Citrus junos) flavour.

I’m fond of a nice combination of rich milk and juicy fruits. It’s perfect

You can also take away those gelato, or send them to your family and friends as a gift.

I really enjoyed the old townscape of Ashimori and local foods.
Ashimori doesn’t have anything spectacular, though, it would make you feel relaxed
