I visited on a Sunday evening. It was out of stock, so if you want to make sure you buy it, it's best to come to the store early. The thin potato kenpi (golden sweet potato) was the most delicious. I couldn't stop and ate it all. The candy is sticky rather than crunchy. Each product uses different types of sweet potatoes, so you can enjoy the different textures and tastes. If you are arriving by car, please use the nearby parking lot. The road in front of me is one lane and there is a lot of traffic, so I can't park there. I will go buy it again.


A store specializing in sweet potatoes.
I happened to come across this place and stopped by on my way back from visiting Jingoji, Saimyoji, and Kozanji temples in Takao.
The famous golden sweet potato was sold out, but I bought salted kenpi and sweet potato.
The taste of the ingredients is fresh and delicious!
There is a coin parking lot next to the store.


Super thin sweet potato kenpi It was very delicious.
There are sweet and salty varieties, and once you start eating both, you won't be able to stop eating them.
There are various types of products such as salted kenpi, golden sweet potato (sweet potato), sweet potato, roasted sweet potato, etc., and the price is also recommended.
I bought all kinds and they were delicious.
I would like to eat it again, and I think it would be great as a souvenir.
We do not have a garage, but there are about 5 coin parking spaces next to the store.
Tickets tend to sell out quickly during tourist seasons and holidays, so I think it's easier to buy on weekdays.
I think it would be a good place to stop by on your way to Ninna-ji, Kinkaku-ji, Ryoan-ji, Arashiyama, etc.

Translated from Japanese:

I went to Kyoto for work for the first time in a while, and after work, I met up with an acquaintance and I found this sweet potato kenpi that was so delicious! I personally like imo kenpi, so the imo kenpi I received as a souvenir from Kochi was also great, but...


Translated from Japanese:

It was my first time. I parked my car on the road leading to the mountain opposite the store and entered the store. When I opened the sliding door, I saw male and female staff members working there, and in front of me was a show window with two types of Daigaku potatoes, sweet potatoes,...
