Takamori Dengaku is a traditional dish that is made to let people enjoy the local ingredients of Takamori for a long time, with “Tsurunoko sweet potato” that can only be found in this area as the main dish. Tsurunoko imo is a kind of taro that is made in the barren land of volcanic ash by receiving the blessings of Mt. Aso. With this “Tsuruimo” as the main dish, Takamori Dengaku is a dish that uses local ingredients such as tofu, konnyaku, and beans, dipped in plenty of Dengaku Miso, and grilled over charcoal until fragrant. Dengaku miso contains a lot of condiments such as sansho (Japanese pepper) and sesame which are sun-soaked and absorb minerals, and it is a dish not only filling your stomach but also keeping your health by eating it. In addition, Aso’s famous Takana rice is cooked in a way that uses as little oil as possible, with the concept of dishes that are gentle to the body.
