Memories with Grandma at the Candy Shop will come back!
Follow the story with letters as you run a Candy Shop by tapping.

Fill up your collection catalog with vintage Japanese sweets and toys! …and customers!!
“Model planes”, “soda mocha”, “whistle candy”, and more!! 
Each one will bring back nostalgic Japanese memories.

The story progresses bit by bit as you advance through the game.
An emotional tale gradually unfolds, but who can say how it will end!?
The game can be played through to the end entirely for free. 
Have fun playing everyday for just a little bit at a time.
Hopefully, it will be a source of joy and warmth in your otherwise hectic day.
At a little Japanese country town in the Showa period, there lies a certain side street straight out of memory lane.
The light of the setting sun is cast brilliantly across the red iron roofs.
A kind old lady, though scary when angered, runs a small store all by herself.
This is the tale of her little candy shop at the street corner.
Our strange yet heartwarming story begins here--a shop whose memory is kept like a gem in a jewel box.
It is the time of radio calisthenics, shaved ice, water balloons, and singing cicadas.
A perfect day during the summer vacation that always seemed to be without end...

How to Play
-Take all the money from those brats…. I mean, receive all the money you can from visiting kids to build up your store! :)

-Complete the catalog by unlocking every nostalgic items available!

-Receive all the letters to see what happens at the end!!

◆Game Flow◆
1. Use Stock to increase your shop's goods
2. A bunch of kid customers will come to your shop with their allowance money in hand.
3. Swipe over kids to collect their money.
4. Level up your Sweets and Toys once you have collected enough money.
5. Unlock new items in the catalog by leveling up your store.
Earning money will get easier as you earn more money by repeating the steps above. (1~4)
Keep doing this to see if you can fill up the catalog and reach the conclusion of the story!

Stocking gradually fills your shop with items that will bring in the kids.
Kids will stop coming to the shop as time goes by, so be sure to check in periodically to stock up the toys and sweets.

Keep the following points in mind!
◎◎◎The amount of items you stocked can be chosen from amongst the 5 levels.◎◎◎

◎◎◎Depending on the amount of Toys and Sweets selected, it will take between 15 minutes to 8 hours to complete stocking.◎◎◎

◎◎◎Purchasing many of items at once will keep your shop running for a long time. But this also depends on the number of kids coming to buy the sweets and toys. ◎◎◎

◎◎◎Purchasing only few items will let the kids be able visit the shop easily so the sweets and toys will sell quickly.◎◎◎

You can build up your store efficiently just by doing a little stocking during your lunch break, or putting in a big stock right before you go to bed!

    Actually the hardest of the shows candy shop games if only because the upgrades cost more of the in-game "coins". Pretty fun and relaxing as all the games in the series are. The story is pretty on theme.

  2. guest-avatar

    I wasn't expecting this much story from an idle game. It was hard to get through parts of it, it was so sad. Really lovely game.

  3. guest-avatar

    Another heart warming game! Simple and relaxing game Love all the graphics and stories. I'm on a mission to play all your games! Well done!

    Really good game but then again so are all of your games. I absolutely love the story line. Smooth game play with no issues. I'm sad I completed the game but I'm here to download another.

  5. guest-avatar

    Really heartwarming ending... You have to be patient on this one..truly idle and de-stress game with beautiful soundtrack and cute art. ..

  6. guest-avatar

    I loved this game. Lovely characters, story and graphics.

  7. guest-avatar

    Simple Game with a Moving Story This is one of those game you play to pass the time. Just checking in every once in a while. But the game itself has some great story that arw unveiled at a nice pace. Although you didn't do much in this game, I think the story and its ending will be worth your while. Can't wait to play the 2nd game!

  8. guest-avatar

    Think this could be a good little game yet I was getting adverts every few clicks on something which was frustrating. I don't mind adverts but when they are that frequent it really spoils it. Didn't have that problem with hungry hearts diner from the same developer

  9. guest-avatar

    Not their strongest work. I prefer GAGEX's other games but still nice as an idle game. As someone who grew up with some of these candies and toys, it does give me a lot of nostalgia.

  10. guest-avatar

    A very good and touching story for everyone to experience, simple gameplay: stock up on sweets, close, get new customers and repeat. Nice little game for many people to enjoy

  11. guest-avatar

    Every night when i couldn't sleep, i played this game and feel the calmness. Whatta relaxing game!!!

  12. guest-avatar

    It's okay. The story is touching, but the gameplay is too simple. I'm still looking for something that's as good as Hungry Hearts.

  13. guest-avatar

    I love this game. It's simple but has a beautiful story intertwined with it. I highly recommend any of this developers games.

  14. guest-avatar

    Like other Gagex games this one is also beautiful and has great stories which are all relatable. All those items in the shop made me nostalgic. Keep it up Gagex!!!

  15. guest-avatar

    it was fine at first but after the third or fourth time i launched the game it keeps crashing every time even if i just launch it. super unplayable.

  16. guest-avatar

    Beautiful little game. A tad frustrating trying to get all the letters at the end but still a good game

  17. guest-avatar

    You don't need to spend tons of hours in this game yet it doesn't failed to make me cry at the end! Thanks for creating such pure game which promotes the love of a grandma. Thank you.

    An awesome game, if you can keep the app open long enough to play it. 😢

    Ads are way too intrusive and destroy immersion. Play Gagex's Hungry Hearts instead for a better example of ad integration.

  20. guest-avatar

    Very sweet game with a nice story and has calming music. Totally worth a play.

    Frances Saquiton


    I love it. It really warms my heart, this game will take a special place within it.

  22. guest-avatar

    really loved the story and what not, but it CRASHED so much.

  23. guest-avatar

    game breaking ads every 2-3 taps, sad it's unplayable when Hungry Hearts is so well done and I wanted to like this game.

  24. guest-avatar

    I can't play the game in my phone... It doesn't support latest androids.. Every time I open it asks for an update .. So can you fill an update for the same

  25. guest-avatar

    prefer the second one, but still good! recommended to play before the sequel.

  26. guest-avatar

    I just got it and it's been crashing constantly. This is the fourth time in 5 minutes, I can't even play the game.

  27. guest-avatar

    Aw, your games always manage to make me cry!! It's really good!

  28. guest-avatar

    i installed this just now and i can't open the app. tried playing it offline, cleaning ram and cache. nothing. the first message pops up, and then the app exits.

  29. guest-avatar

    I love Gagex games. Oden Cart series is my fav, followed by the Showa Candy series. I am replaying this after completing Candy 3!

  30. guest-avatar

    Cute memories leisure, afk kind of game, simple fun

    This has potential for being a wonderful atmospheric game if it had bigger or zoomable graphics of the proprietress and stock. Better pictures and information on the items would really help(see Dagashi Kashi's success). Also imo the atmosphere's ruined after I upgraded the Sweets and am now beset by packs of people whenever I play haha. It was very fitting that customers were rare, a realistic and relaxing touch. I recommend Oden Cart by the same publisher for a far comfier time.

  61. guest-avatar

    Fun game with a cute and touching story that is told through letters to a grandmother. Simple gameplay - stock your shelves, close the game, come back later and collect the money and clean the shop. Use the money to buy more stock and upgrade your store. Points to note: Only buy one item at a time - each option just changes the timer, and it is overwritten with each purchase (ie: if you buy the 1h option and then immediately but the 15min one, your timer will run out at 15 min.) Also, go with the 15min.

  62. guest-avatar

    Even though I don't live in Japan, the play through is easy to get into. Also, the children (and adult) that go to the store are quite entertaining to see when you click them. It's too similar to how a person reacts when they're caught off guard :))

  63. guest-avatar

    Love the graphics. There is a lot of details here. It is a very slow game, takes time to earn money. Cute stories about the characters that frequent the store. If you want a fast pace game this is not for you. After playing the restaurant game by the same developer, this was really slow and boring but it does allow you to play at your own leisure. Wish there was more to do besides sit and wait around. Plus the ads pop up way too frequently for my liking, like every time I went to purchase stock there's an ad.

  64. guest-avatar

    I love the fact that my phone can easily play this game without crashing or lagging. The first thing that got me into playing this game was the art. It's simple & cute. The color is nice too. I found myself wishing happiness & good health for the granny too. :)

  65. guest-avatar

    I really love this game..its cute and doesn't lag what so ever. But there is one problem tho... when u already you know complete everything,collect everything and all that.. what do u do next? Like i literally already upgrade all the toys,sweets and cleanup to the max level soo srsly what do i do next?

  66. guest-avatar

    This game is obviously full of love! The story, though simple, is written with care, and the art is beautifully done. There's not a lot to the game, but what is there obviously had thought and care put into it. Each character that can show up to your shop has their own little entering and leaving animations, and each one is unique and full of character, making you feel a sense of love and familiarity even within very brief interactions. Overall, I couldn't ask for more from the visual presentation. The game play is simple and easy to relax to if you're waiting for something, but unfortunately you run out of upgrades to purchase about 2/3rds of the way through the plot, and without a concrete milestone to reach for, the game play starts to get stale much quicker. The game had to trouble keeping my attention towards the end. Overall I loved the game's atmosphere, but it wasn't enough to engage me the whole way through. I would reccomend it to anyone looking for a relaxing title that's easy to pick up and put down.

  67. guest-avatar

    I liked it, and was charmed by it. I played it all the way to the end, which means there was definitely *something* there, but I felt like something was 'missing' gameplay-wise. Then I saw the layout/apparent mechanics of Showa Candy Shop 2 and went 'ah-ha', and am keenly going off to play the improved version :)

  68. guest-avatar

    The game is great, the messages the kids send me touches my heart. But the game crashes constantly whenever I try to collect the coins from the kids.. Are there any upcoming patches that could fix this? Thanks!

  69. guest-avatar

    really cute, nostalgic and interesting to read all the different sweet descriptions. however just one qualm- whenever i restock my sweets an ad appears, as well as other times during the game when i just tap around aimlessly. said ad occasionally hangs my phone and crashes the game; gets kind of annoying. thanks.

  70. guest-avatar

    Just played another gagex game and wanted to try this. Uninstalled after first 5 min, way too many ads and really messed up the play flow. Glad they improved with other games.

  71. guest-avatar

    This game was okay to play. Due to the amount of waiting I have to do to gain all the letters. I got bored real quick. Sure, the graphics and music are nice but I had a difficult time going back to play the game. It got to the point where I force myself to save enough coins to level up my items at once to finish. The gameplay is easy. All you do is clean the shop, wait for a bunch of customers, swipe them, and earn enough coins to level up items. Keep in mind that this is a waiting game where you will have to go back for a certain amount of hours to earn coins and restock. The storyline is meh. It was sweet but my connection to the characters quickly wears off due to the wait time..

  72. guest-avatar

    A little dull. I loved their previous hungry hearts game but this is nothing like that. Limited sorry line and interaction. All you seen to do is stick shelves then click on customers to take their money until you have enough to level up :(

  73. guest-avatar

    whole page ads are annoying. But the toys! I'm not Japanese but I know these toys!!! Some of it were actually in my childhood! I love it, the storyline kind of jumped quite quick but I was able to finish this game in less than 2 days, probably even less if I didn't sleep, etc. this one's shorter than the Part two game.

  74. guest-avatar

    Super Super slow to earn coins, each kid spent about $5 to $10 each time and each upgrade on sweets, toys and cleanup need a lot of coins and even more at higher stage, it would be better to be able to earn the coins some other ways. Waiting for the kids to patronize is also kinda slow and boring. Need a lot of patience to play the Developer's games.

  75. guest-avatar

    Gameplay amounts to little more than a slow clicker game where you tap on children to get coin. Sweets, toys, and cleanup level can be upgraded 5 times each. Didn't come across any storytelling aside from the prologue though I quit early since it was boring. Then there's the random fullscreen interstitials. This is like one of those crappy browser Flash games.

    I usually go for high speed or more action typed games but this game just melts my heart. The music, atmosphere, and the story is amazing. Sweet game for relaxing. Definitely recommend if you like slow-pace games!

  77. guest-avatar

    Love it! The story is well done, the graphics are just..stellar, no glitches that I know of. This game is so calming and lovely!! I love it! Only thing is now that I have collected everything, I feel quite aimless, haha. 😅

  78. guest-avatar

    In my opinion, this game is kind of boring. I think you should make it a bit more like Hungry Hearts. Otherwise, it's cool!

  79. guest-avatar

    This is so cute. I really like the storyline although it's kinda sad, always makes me wanna cry haha.. I've also played showa candy shop 2!! Please make this game zoomable.

  80. guest-avatar

    Everytime I see the morning glory boy lays down on ground, I'm always like "DON'T DIE ON ME BOYYY" X''D The poor kid needs water so bad. The goods are very interesting to be unlocked, seen & read! You guys really improved the second version a lot. GJ ( o v o)b I read some complained about the slow gameplay and all, but I think some game are meant to be played slow for players who seek for relaxation & peace of mind. So, don't mind them much!

  81. guest-avatar

    Pfft so while jobless and depressed Subaru gets married and all her troubles go away? Oh please! It was great up till then but that just completely disregards the very real difficulties in girls' lives!

  82. guest-avatar

    That was one of the sweetest story I have ever read. As someone who has a very close relationship with their grandmother this story really pulls on my heart strings. Keep up the good work. I'll be reading the next ones as well

  83. guest-avatar

    Loved the graphics on this one. But I got a little confused with the story at the end. Who's writing to who? Is Subaru the granchild, or the granny?

  84. guest-avatar

    Alexandra Labanda


    The music is relaxing, the art style is cute yet holds a traditional feel to it. The letters to Grandma are also very touching- it makes me think of my grandma and everything she still does for me.

  85. guest-avatar

    Boring. You stock the shelves with candy and wait for kids to come in... And wait... For one or two... At a time. I thought, ok, I'll check other apps and come back to check for kids. After 20 minutes, the grandma finally got a letter to start the "story." Not compelling. Too many ads, while just learning the game, I was interrupted 3 times. Finally, they can't necessarily control ads, but they can control who is doing their ads... I was testing out the game, thinking of putting it on my boys' tablets (5y and 7y) but then there was an ad for a shopping app with a boosmy bra photo. I just decided to removed the app from my phone. There was no option available to tell them it was inappropriate.

  86. guest-avatar

    The game is really come up with a good story, so touching yet mysterious. The music is really good and I think I fell in love with the music But the gameplay is too simple and not really challenging at all

  87. guest-avatar

    Cute, relaxing and contemplative. Not much "gameplay" but more of a zen exercise of the charm inherent in life's little details.

  88. guest-avatar

    Simple game and touching story. I keep waiting for the next letter. The candy shop is nice, but I think the customers little bit odd. I also think it could be better if we can 'zoom' the candy shop to see the products maybe.

  89. guest-avatar

    I played Oden Cart before I discovered this game and its sequel, skipped over this game and just went straight to playing Showa Candy Shop 2 - and was quite disappointed by the minimal story and gameplay, compared to Oden Cart. I came back to this much much later and actually played it through in its entirety, and now I can see how this set the precedent for the rest of the games: Showa Candy Shop encompasses the cute and relaxing atmosphere present through the Oden Cart games and the Hungry Hearts Diner. And that made this game worthwhile, in my opinion. My favorite part is the animation for each customer! Especially when the fox mask kid flips in and out of the shop! The last few letters also made me wonder if [[spoilers]] the grandmother we see in-game has been Subaru the whole time, or if time passed alongside the arrival of rarer customers so that they came when it was Subaru manning the shop...

  90. guest-avatar

    Very cute game, the story is good although it takes a bit to get through it. Ads aren't very intrusive and you don't need to pay anything to enjoy or complete the game

  91. guest-avatar

    For making this game. It's easy to play and the story was a ride from sweet to painful to bitter sweet drops. I'm going to remove this app for space but I will never forget this game.

  92. guest-avatar

    I would have spent more time in the game, but the time to wait for replenishing stocks is so disappointing. :(

  93. guest-avatar

    I finished in a couple weeks. There were definitely way too many ads for my liking, but it was an easy and fun game to play in my free time.

  94. guest-avatar

    The Story is cute and simple. I would probably play it again! I would recommend playing it to kill time.

  95. guest-avatar

    It's a nice relaxing game that you pick up for a few seconds here and there and put down again. The story seems a bit forced and truncated but otherwise it's a good game.

  96. guest-avatar

    For those who treasure a slow pace, heart warming game, flashback hits everywhere

  97. guest-avatar

    I really enjoyed my time playing this game. It has a little side Story and makes you look in a new perspective. I loved it

  98. guest-avatar

    Simple and enjoyable, a story that doesn't take center stage but is still heartfelt and gameplay that is not demanding while still being satisfying. A short sweet game

  99. guest-avatar

    Not as good as the Oden Cart, but I still liked this game. The descriptions of the candy were funny. All in all a good game.

  100. guest-avatar

    Only played for 2 minutes and 5 ads popped up... bad.
