Kamonasu – かもなす - 賀茂茄子

Kamonasu is a special round eggplant grown only in Kyoto.  It is grown only in the area around the Kamigamo Shrine between the Kamo and Takano rivers in northern Kyoto.

We found this garden about 8 minutes walk from Kamigamo Shrine, right in the middle of a neighborhood.  The neighborhood has the elementary school where our Sensei went.
