One of my most favorite characters in this neighborhood is the Yaki Imo delivery truck. Yaki means grilled and Imo means potato. In this case, this guy sells grilled sweet potatoes. But his method of cruising through the neighborhood should not be taken likely. This man is a pro, even if the recording skips just a little bit.
Unfortunately, we haven’t seen Mr. Yaki Imo in a while so we’re not quite sure if we will ever get to eat one. But if he comes back, rest assured I will be the first one on my block waiting for that sweet delicious treat. Enjoy!
Oh, and here are the lyrics to the song. Let’s all sing along.
yakimo~~, yakiimo~~~, ishi ya~~~~kiimo~~~~~, yakiimo~~~~
roasted potato, roasted potato, stone roasted potato, roasted potato
