Reason why I love Japan - Snacks

One of my favorite things in Japan is the snacks. Growing up in Japan, I had the chance to enjoy the best savory snacks. Since there was a little snack store a minute away from where I lived, I used to buy cheap Japanese snacks called “dagashi” almost every day. Dagashi is usually a pretty low-priced snack with funny packaging that attracts kids like me with small allowances. Dagashi was usually packaged in childish wrapping, which came with prizes. These prizes are randomized prices that will allow the buyer to claim a free snack. These snacks primarily used to be sold in stores called a “dagashiya” which primarily sells drinks and snacks. They have hundreds of snacks that are typically priced between $0.15-$1.00. Not only is it cheap, but you can get many kinds of snacks and enjoy them. My favorite ones were the hard candies and the gummies. It’s definitely something I’d want people in the United States to try.  

 

This is the exact store I used to go to in Japan. Literally like my second home
