Overview

Satsumaimo (Sweet Potatoes)

Cultivation in Kanazawa started when Goro Shimamura brought some seed potatoes over from the Satsuma domain (present Kagoshima) during the Edo period. Grown in the sand hills of the coast, the breathable and water retaining gritty soil produces exceptionally tasty sweet potatoes.
