100% Wagashi. Not Dagashi.

Wagashi are an important part of Japanese culture and have a long history and tradition behind them. They are often enjoyed for their aesthetic appeal as well as their flavor, and are often served at special occasions or as a way to show hospitality. Dagashi, on the other hand, are more of a casual snack food and do not hold the same cultural significance.

There were so many unique sweet and salty snacks in there that I've never seen in local Asian or Japanese stores so it was really fun to bite into something completely new.
