When I first arrived to Tokyo years ago I stumbled upon one of the mini-branches of Funawa in a department store... from then on whenever I spot this shop I'll pick up one sweet potato stick.
Box sets shown but you can buy just 1.
There it is... chilled fresh sweet "imo youkan"
This franchise has been around for over 100 years.
Perfect size... hits the spot and only 96 cents.
Its located to the right of the main Kaminari-Mon entrance next to the blue Karaoke shop.
And you can sit on the guardrail with a great view of Sky Tree and the occasional sports car... Nissan R34 GTR this day. If you stop by Asakusa definitely pick up a stick of Imo Youkan!
