I used to up in the mountains around Saitama with my dad when I was 5 or 6, and get yamaimo. You had dig a long ways to get a reasonable amount – because the wild ones were pretty thin. How did them things taste? Similar to yamaimo? Nah, they are denser and sweeter… You can get them in fried cake form at dim sum places. Did you know they call taro, carrot, in Bali/Indonesian? On the airplane, I was offered carrot cake with shrimp and chili sauce for breakfast, and went for it. It was the most delicious airplane food ever: savory fried rice with shrimp, green onions & veggies, and a sublime red chili sauce that was the perfect balance of sweet-spicy-sour, with yummy, creamy pieces of taro mixed in! Later, in Singapore, I ordered carrot cake at a dim sum place and got the dim sum fried cake form, and it too, was tasty!
