Known in the Edo Period as a "post town," Yui is now famous for its views of Mount Fuji.
Yui is home to the Tōkaidō Hiroshige Art Museum, at which Utagawa Hiroshige's series of woodblock prints, "The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō," is exhibited, along with many other pieces of ukiyo-e art. Yui's local specialty is sakura shrimp, which can be experienced in a variety of ways at local stores and restaurants, from sashimi to kamameshi (iron pot rice) and aemono (Japanese-style salad), although it is most famously featured in tempura. Other seafood is also abundant, with restaurants serving dishes such as sakura shrimp, tuna sashimi and donburi topped with local seafood.
