Must-Try! Creative Konnyaku/Konjac Desserts from Japan's Yamagata Prefecture

Surrounding Areas Of Yamagata

Konjac (konnyaku) is known by many creative phrases: devil's tongue, voodoo lily, snake palm or elephant yam. Its starchy root (called a corm) contains a high amount of fiber and is used in a variety of Japanese dishes. Yamagata Prefecture has the highest consumption of konjac in Japan. Here it is used in different dishes such as the specialty dish “Tama Konnyaku” and special autumn dish “Imoni Jiru (potato stew).” Here we will focus on new dishes using konjac. We visited Narageshuku Tanno Konnyaku, a facility that has focused on konjac dishes since they opened their doors in Kaminoyama City. With new types of konjac dishes and sweets, the way you look at konjac will be sure to change!
