Yakiimo Man 石焼き芋屋さん

When the nights are cold in Japan you can sometimes hear the call “ya ki i mo” (やきいも) after dark. Heading out into the cold darkness you will discover someone like this man selling baked sweet potatoes out of a cart or the back of a mini-truck. I spotted this guy next to the Kanda River.

It appears from his license plate that he came all the way in from Hachioji to sell them two for 500 yen.

    Got to love the Yakiimo man especially in winter with his hot potato and funky music playing. One of the sounds of Japan for me.
