In recent years, Japanese potatoes have been popular overseas. Foreigners are surprised by the wide variety of Japanese potatoes. Potatoes, sweet potatoes, taros, Chinese yams, and more – such a wide variety of potatoes is not seen overseas. In addition, potatoes are used and processed in diverse ways. Since potatoes are considered to be vegetables overseas, it is rare for potatoes to be turned into sweets as with ishiyakiimo and sweet potato confections. Are Japanese potatoes, which are beginning to gather attention from around the world, cool from the perspective of foreigners?
