You might know “Dagashi”? Though best known for its traditional, refined confectioneries, Japan has its own unique selection of cheap and novelty candy that is as terrible, weird, wonderful, and cavity-inducing as you’ll find anywhere else in the world.

This is not the realm of local specialties and seasonal, bean paste-filled sweets. Pull out your spare 10-yen coins and enter the fascinating world of dagashi; cheap Japanese candy. Though over the years mom-and-pop candy stores have been disappearing and prices for many items have risen beyond the old 5-10 yen price range, dagashi continue to be sought after by the young and young-at-heart. Especially the old time when you were kid (especially Japanese people), you might have thought that if you could buy all kinds of dagashi and eat all at once. The dream comes true! The place is located near Shibuya.

The dagashi Bar offers an affordable option for a night out in the more expensive Shibuya district. For 2500 yen, you can enjoy all-you-can-eat dagashi and drinks while staying 2hours with your friends in an establishment reminiscent of the Showa era. With over 100 types of dagashi to choose from, you may wish to consult with a dentist after visiting! Of course, you can have some normal side dishes including healthy salad.
