History of Kuri(Chestnuts) in Kyoto

Kyoto is a favorite of many travelers.

Natural Kyoto locals say that nothing but Tanba Kuri (chestnuts) are chestnuts.
The unit price of Kyoto-grown chestnuts is 3-4 times higher than in other areas of Japan.

I love chestnuts so much that I once compared Kyoto-grown and Fukuoka-grown chestnuts.
However, I could not tell the difference in taste.

I wonder if the price of Kyoto-grown chestnuts is a brand or pride, I think as I eat Kyoto-grown chestnut rice.

November is the month of autumn leaves.
Autumn leaves in Kyoto are the only place in the world where they intersect with temples.
I will report on that in November.
