Roasted sweet potato warms the heart
When the weather cools down in Japan, you start hearing the familiar voice of the yaki-imo (roasted sweet potato) vendor. He expertly wails "Ishi (stones) yaki-imo" for the whole neighborhood to hear while selling the delicious treats from his truck that roasts satsuma-imo (sweet potato) on hot stones. The longer they cook, the sweeter and more delectable they become. Satsuma-imo are grown in Ibaraki, Chiba, Miyazaki and Tokushima, but mainly in Kagoshima (originally Satsuma), which accounts for up to 40% of Japan's harvest.
