Nihon-ichi-no Imoni-kai Festival にほんいちのいもにかいふぇすてぃばる
Literally, Best Imonikai in Japan!
“Imoni-kai,” seasonal tradition of autumn in Yamagata
As autumn arrives in Yamagata, family and friends gather at the riverbed and put cobbles together to make a furnace; then enjoy outdoor one-pod cooking “Imoni-kai” with taro, beef, konnyaku, and green onion.
The arrival of “Imoni-kai” season is announced by “Nihon-ichi-no Imoni-kai Festival” which is held every September in Mamigasaki, Yamagata-shi.
Originally started in 1989 by Yamagata Chamber of Commerce Youth Group, this is the most delicious and biggest Imoni-kai event with a large pan with 6 meters in diameter in Japan.
