Imoyoshi Yakata opened in 1986 in Kamakura to bring back the tradition of imokan, traditional sweet shops that made sweets with sweet potatoes. Imoyoshi Yakata highlights the purple sweet potato in particular, making a variety of sweets from their prized ingredient. But this month, we’re highlighting one of their delicious savory options. These potato sticks are like crisp french fries coated in a cheddar cheese powder. Not exactly traditional, but that’s why we love them!
