Shinagawa Yaki-imo Terrace

Things to do, Food and drink events

Sure, snuggling up underneath your kotatsu with a roasted sweet potato is pretty damn comfy, but the real way forward is to eat it outdoors, handed to you steaming from a cart – and this week-long event in Shinagawa lets you do exactly that. The size of the festival area has been doubled for this year, so there will be plenty of stands covering sweet potato types you wouldn't usually be able to eat in Tokyo, plus all sorts of other yaki-imo-flavoured snacks and drinks. Taste a bunch to find your favourite, but you might have to arrive early-ish – most stalls only operate until they sell out.
