Potato power

I saw (and heard, and smelled) an 石焼イモ truck drive by while I was walking yesterday. Yep, winter is almost here. Some things to watch, read, and think about, regarding sweet potatoes, yams, and satsuma-imo:

“Sweet dreams of a childhood winter warmer: Why hot satsumaimo (sweet potatoes) are among Japan’s most nostalgic nosh” (from the Japan Times)

This video of a yaki-imo truck is in Japanese with English subtitles:

That’s one tradition I hope will never disappear. How about these “29 Japanese Street Foods” (from Japan Talk)? Which of these brings back the most childhood memories? Which would you like to introduce to visitors to Japan?
