A kind of taro, also known as Kyo taro. They are named ''Shrimp-shaped taro'' because their curved shapes and horizontal stripes look like those of shrimps. They are popular ingredients because they don't soften easily and thus can soak in a lot of flavor from sauces. Their sticky texture also makes them very popular. In Kyoto, it is often cooked with dried cod.
