This popular candy shop has a bouncy pop soundtrack for sweet tooths perusing its rows of Lucite bins, where cute packaging reigns supreme. Donan’s strawberry-caramel candies are in baby-pink boxes decked with smiling strawberries; little koala bears smile on shiny green bags carrying Lotte’s chocolate-filled cookies. There are also savory goods like dried seafood snacks, classic wasabi peas, and more priced by the 1/2 pound, and about every flavor of "Pocky" you can find. Not cheap, but surely worth the experience.
