Back by popular demand! The sequel to Showa Candy Shop!

Experience nostalgia with a Japanese twist in this moving game.
Uncover the story of a small, old-fashioned candy shop in rural
Japan with this leisurely game. Raise the reputation of your tiny
shop, and build a collection of retro Japanese toys!
Collect amusing snacks and toys such as Yoogurt, a Glowing
Skeleton, and the Pickled Plum as you discover the things
that brought a smile to the face of every little boy and girl in Japan!

The story unfolds bit by bit with every item you collect, and is sure
to keep you playing until the very end! We have also added a
(completely free!) capsule toy machine that we think you'll find just
as pointless as any you've ever tried—but you won't be able to stop!

So come on in!
This little candy shop just received a huge shipment of junk, and
somebody's got to buy it!
Did we say "buy"? Don't worry, we won't charge you a single cent
for any of it. Check back each day to play through the entire story
free of charge! The candy shop is always open, waiting for you
to stop by for a refreshing snack!


■The Story
Welcome to an inconspicuous street corner in Showa-era Japan.
All of Tokyo is positively buzzing ahead of the 1960 Olympics,
but this little nook is home to an unassuming candy shop run by
a sweet, unassuming old woman.

As yet another day comes to a close, she watches the setting sun
bathe Tokyo Tower in a soft glow and reflects.
A lot happened today—some of it good, and some of it not.
Join this sweet old woman on her journey, and experience a bygone era.
A lone trumpet scores the sunset as she writes a letter...but to who?

Marbles, Balls, and Balloons...
Gooey Candies, Seasoned Seaweed, and Kaleidoscopes...
These are halcyon days.
No smartphones, no internet distractions. Just peace, solitude,
and a summer break that stretches out endlessly before you.
This is the exceptional story of an ordinary old woman.

Amazing

ElJewann

I downloaded this game for some reason that I still don’t know and I expected it to be a little ad infested, but I figured I’ll try it anyways and I soon fell in love with it. I love the storyline so far, but I have to admit that I get a little impatient when waiting for a letter, but that’s fine I just work on the shop a little and check back every few hours to refill stocks. I love the music and the little descriptions of items it gives you, I feel like it makes the game just a little bit more interesting. I want to get the $2.99 add on just for the music and I see people complain about how the prices say $0 and $2, but they’ll probably not buy it or if they bought it and didn’t check the little apple pop up asking for a password then they should be more aware. Overall I find the game calming and a great time killer with an amazing story so far.

Mellow background music, play at your own pace.

This is a great game to play in the evening if your brain is refusing to shut down. You can turn off the sound effects and leave just the background music/soundtrack, which is just repetitive enough to be soothing but not annoying. You don’t need to spend money on this game, either; it’s a little slow if you only log in a couple times a day because you need to be in the game at various days of the week (in game time, not real time) to get all the items you need to complete the sets in your catalogue. But the customers don’t disappear if you don’t log in right away—they seem to wait around to “pay” even after you run out of merchandise, so there’s no mad rush to log in and collect. Nice, low-key game with a melancholy backstory.

Overrated

I started playing this game a couple of days ago. I paid $.99 for no ads. I played a little longer, then decided to pay the $2.00, which allegedly would give me twice as many customers. When I paid for the two dollar option, I was charged $2.99 rather than two dollars. Needless to say, I was seriously annoyed. Additionally, if one is tempted to stock one’s store with the Candy Palooza at 15,000 coins for fifteen minutes, DO NOT!!! Even with two ad bonuses within those fifteen minutes, it will not come close to recouping your money, and there is nothing else special for that amount of coins! I was interested to see how the story ended, which is why I continued to play, and paid what I thought was a couple of bucks for it.
