Imokin from Mangando☆

Imokin is a Japanese sweet made of sweet potatoes. I think it baked sweet potatoes’ paste. (I am not sure how to cook it well. Sorry).

I introduce Usukawa Imokin which is Imokin with thin skins.

Regular Imokin expires in 24 hours but Uskawa Imokin has longer expiration date.

There is packed 6 pieces of Imokin in the box.

The bottom of the box says “How to eat Usukawa Imokin much better”.

Hmm, baked Imokin is also nice?

So, I baked it.

Unbaked Imokin is also good. But baked one is certanily better!! The skin gets crispier. 

I don’t have a good English example to express it, but anyway, it is great.

Unbaked and baked one, both of them are nice. But I like the baked one.

The main shop is on Orange street where a little far from Sensoji temple.  I guess it is located at a place closed to Asakusa Public Hall.  The shop also sells Imokin flavor soft-serve ice cream.  I went there to buy it, however, they had no ice cream since the time I visited was too late. Sigh.  
I will visit again. Then, I will buy the ice cream and regular Imokin.

Asakusa Mangando shops are mainly located in Asakusa. But they also located in Haneda Airport and Tokyo Daimaru which is a department store connecting to Tokyo Station.
