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.

■How to Play
・Use the money you receive from customers to improve your store.
・See if you can collect all the items in the Catalog!
・Experience the entirety of the game's story!
・Use special tokens to spin the capsule toy machine—try to collect them all!

Basic Rules
1. Stock your store.
2. All the neighborhood children will stop by the shop.
3. Tap or swipe the children to collect their money.
4. Use the money you collect to upgrade the shop in the Shop Menu.
5. Upgrade your shop to unlock new merchandise!
6. New merchandise attracts new customers.
7. Fill up your catalog by attracting a variety of customers!
Repeat steps 1-4 to earn money even faster. More money means more upgrades!
Keep playing until you've completed your collection and finished the story!

Different Days, Different Customers
Some customers may only appear on certain days.
Check the Catalog to see which customers appear on which days,
and check in on the shop every so often to see what day it is!
And remember, the days of the week don't follow the real world's clock!

Mementos will sometimes appear in the room at the back of the shop.
Collect them to advance the story. And don't forget to check in from
time to time and see what's new!

Spin the capsule toy machine and collect simple, useless toys.
The toys you get vary from day to day. You will get duplicates,
but don't let that get you down!
The capsule toy machine only takes special tokens.
Earn these tokens by collecting mementos or completing other tasks.

    The story is longer, there are more collections and characters than the first one! I really like the story about the main character who chase his dream and people who against him, it is relatable for everyone. One small thing is, the hours of the stocks are kind of hilarious since the expensive one doesn't give you more hour like the first one, it just give you some new collections, so I don't get what is the point of making the hours different.

    Very fun sequel to the original with more things to find. I enjoyed collecting the items and unlocking all the characters.

  3. guest-avatar

    I dunno if it's just me, but the UI is a bit buggy. The coin and gacha token counter overlapping with older number. I sometimes get stuck on viewing the letters. And the fact that random ads plays while doing something. The first game is a lot better quality than this one.

  4. guest-avatar

    exactly what it says on the tin. nostalgic, fun, relaxing with a heart warming story. absolutely free to play, non-challenging! few developers make games to help you relax and nothing else.

    Finally finished this game. Another game with a heartwarming story. Also it's fun to get to know what kind of goods are available as you unlock it & new minigame as you play gacha game & collect them all

  6. guest-avatar

    cheerful sparrow


    That's such a comforting and heartwarming game! I totally loved it. The letters were kinda unclear to me but it's ok.

  7. guest-avatar

    sweet game with nice story, i love how u can leave this game and not having to be very active to progress

  8. guest-avatar

    Xanthippi Ardagelou


    how can a story be this nice and cute? how can just a few letters let you feel all these emotions? Amazing game.!

  9. guest-avatar

    This is not just a game. It's a beautiful and touching story. I love it!

  10. guest-avatar

    omg....this game is super lazy.Other than swipe/tapping customer you basicly cant do anything. You wait. What a boring game

  11. guest-avatar

    U have no idea what ur doing and the customers always fly and it blocks and pop up ads :-(

  12. guest-avatar

    Such a charming adorable game

  13. guest-avatar

    Charming and simple

  14. guest-avatar

    Can't get the last two letters

  15. guest-avatar

    Again a heartwarming little story <3

  16. guest-avatar

    Not like the first one.

  17. guest-avatar

    Pretty decent game and fun to play. Does take a while to unlock all the achievements so it's not a quick game but it's faster than the first one. Loved the little narrative with the Grandma. However this game wasn't nearly as fun as the hungry hearts diner as far as engaging continuous gameplay. And it's really hard to collect all the capsules, although you certainly don't have to finish collecting everything before the game's narrative ends (and you don't get anything special from collecting them all afterwards too). Still I loved the graphics and it was fun reading about the collected memberships and the letters.

    I've loved all of the games from this developer so far. This one is still buggy though. I bought the VIP since it was inexpensive and would support them, but now I get even less customers than before! The complete opposite of what the VIP is supposed to be. A bit disappointing. I think Hungry Hearts was better as well as the Oden Cart.

  19. guest-avatar

    A slightly better model of gameplay than Showa Candy Shop 1 with more unlocks and rewards tied to characters and product types, there's a little more strategy involved. The story is wonderful and easy to get lost in. It is also written very well to increase suspense. If only the gameplay matched the story's level of intrigue. The game itself is quite monotonous and boring to play in order to reveal the very interesting storyline.

  20. guest-avatar

    Actually, I want to give 5 star. But, I'm really not satisfied with the bug or something. I already got some new customer, and they was written in my catalogue, but the next day , that customer gone from my catalogue. It's really pissed me off. Even this game is not an adventurous game, but I like the experience when I get a new customer, because they are cute. And I wonder, until when this game will be ended if my new customer always gone from my catalogue. I can't wait the happy ending for grandma. Thank you for your consideration.

  21. guest-avatar

    Refreshing, relaxing and consuming ( not in an addictive but alluring kind of way) I'm so happy I came across this. The visuals are eye pleasing. The story too moves you emotionally. A different variety of genre. Love games from gagex - they usually appear to be childish but are more thought provoking than any other.

  22. guest-avatar

    As compared to its first series, this is much better as the pacing of the game is faster (kids visit the store on a more frequent basis). There are more items to purchase and stuff to collect plus the capsule game. All are retro stuff and I love the background music with the meowing of a cat, I do hope to see the cat though 😸 We also don't need to pay overly quantity of coins to pay when we do the stock up unlike the first series :)

  23. guest-avatar

    Relaxing game to play. Finding the letters at the back of the shop is my main reason for playing. However, at the 2nd last letter, it took a long time of playing before it came out. Also, the condition for each customer to come in the shop seems to not really apply when I play. I feel like these 2 issues made the game less enjoyable.

    I love this game so much.. i cried while reading those letter from taro. I can relate with him. Unable to see your mom and to shameful to even see her. Wasted his youth to pursue his dream but failed miserably. I haven't finish this game so i dont know what kind of end will happen. Thank you.. this game have a good story and very touching. I really love it

    I downloaded this after playing Hungry Hearts and a bit disappointed because you are not the one handing out the candies unlike Hungry Hearts. I thought it'd be more interactive but I loved this game. The nostalgia is still there and makes me miss the childhood I had. Great game.

  26. guest-avatar

    Over all I really liked this story line, I think I liked it better than the 1st one. The one thing I did not like is I have a Galaxy phone where the controls go over the edges and the screen did not seem responsive to my touches during this game .

  27. guest-avatar

    Feel a bit empty as I finish the game. Somehow I've got used to the image of grandma sipping tea watching the kids run around ☺ Will look forward to your upcoming games 😊

  28. guest-avatar

    I'm loving this game so far! Yes, it's slow moving and simple, but that's what I line. It's relaxing and beautiful. You'll feel nostalgic even if you're young. It's a great game to play while doing something else, like watching TV.

  29. guest-avatar

    This game has a heartwarming storyline that I enjoyed reading. It may be boring for those who don't understand the concept of how the game works, but I personally loved it. I loved the design and art. I'd recommend this to those who like relaxing story games.

  30. guest-avatar

    The game is poorly made and I hated the controles. The game play wasn't the greatist but I liked the graphics. I do not recommend this to anyone personly

  31. guest-avatar

    Just beat this one and now all I have left to defeat is oden cart 2. Please release new games similar soon! These were so much fun to play!

  32. guest-avatar

    The graphics and layout of the game is amazing. But, there games ans storylines are so deeply moving. It makes me think of the simple things we often take for granted.

  33. guest-avatar

    Catherine Cheng


    I really liked the fact that the toys and sweets featured were similar to the ones I encountered in my childhood here in Manila! It was interesting for me to find out in Japan kids liked the same things!

  34. guest-avatar

    Love how this one ties in to the previous game. The story is both happy, sad and complex in such a natural way. I'm looking forward to other games by this developer to get translated into English 😊

  35. guest-avatar

    Zubaidah Salleh


    Please have more levels. I love this game so much. The colours are soothing to the eye. The music is calming. I want the third game to have more levels! The only thing I am unsatisfied about is how fast the game finishes. 🤣 Please consider making the third game

  36. guest-avatar

    If you are into collecting stuffs it is pretty cool it seems boring at first but when you start unlocking things you would want more simply awesome stuff it gives you a taste of how it feels like being a japanese kid and brings back childhood memories. The catalog is like collecting stickers/stamps haha. Thx for simple yet pretty cool game. . .

  37. guest-avatar

    After playing 'Hungry Hearts' I had high hopes for this game, but it doesn't even come close to it.. Unfortunately the letters to the grandma are the only thing that make me want to keep playing. The gameplay itself is not challenging or fun and just repetitive.

  38. guest-avatar

    The game is amazing! Such a good way to relax. But I hope that in the next update we will be able to see day turn to night, time pass by as we play

  39. guest-avatar

    Game continues to keep crashing on me when I just started it out. It will not save my progress so getting frustrated

  40. guest-avatar

    I downloaded this a long time ago after I played Oden Cart, but I didn't like this one as much; the letters took too long to obtain and we didn't get individual stories from the customers unlike with Oden Cart. I'm glad I redownloaded it though, because while I still think the story itself took too long, it was still a cute and sweet game. The art is as good as ever and the story as sad but heart-warming as the other games'. And to think this was actually a prequel to the first game! ♡

  41. guest-avatar

    Experience a tale born out of the nostalgia for a simpler time. Put yourself in the shoes of a Showa-era candy store owner as she rereads letters from the past, sketching out a bittersweet story that crosses both cultural and generational lines.

  42. guest-avatar

    Laksmi Anggraeni


    The granny reminded me of my late granny and mum, please don't make open another letters, made me cried a lot 😢😢 I do missed my granny and my mum 😭😭

  43. guest-avatar

    Art work is cute but not their best game. Less interaction. Just kind of a 'tap on the customers and they flit away like two dimensional paper humming birds leaving behind a coin. Also as far as i can tell you don't actually interact with them at all. They just drop junk you pick up and store in a dingy cupboard. Note: took me a long time to figure this out but the "back" button takes you to the back of the store- where more customers ate waiting.

  44. guest-avatar

    I downloaded this after finishing "hungry hearts". It's simpler but also makes your heart warm by reminding your childhood. I'll keep waiting for the next Gagex's game.

  45. guest-avatar

    Game can be slow, did not unlock all items by the end. Enjoyed reading the letters, sweet story, but sometimes hard to figure out.

  46. guest-avatar

    Not nearly as interactive or inspiring as their other games. Cute concept and art though, just slightly flat.

  47. guest-avatar

    When I opened the app, it always crashes and says the app has stopped, I just wasted my time downloading this and I wasted my data 😡

  48. guest-avatar

    It's a nice relaxing game that you pick up for a few seconds here and there and put down again. I like that the story is more hashed out than in the first game. However, I don't like that the opening sound of the app cannot be silenced without muting the phone as well - choosing to mute the app is not enough to mute this sound. The last few candy items and children also take forever to collect; I'm still not able to get them at the time I'm writing this. Finally, at the end of the play, I keep getting bombarded with "offer" to buy plaques to decorate the house with using real money, even though I had already paid some game features to support the company. I'm suspecting now that game completion cannot be reached without buying these plaques. Uninstalling the game now out as the game is no longer fun and is turning into a chore.

  49. guest-avatar

    Probably the sweetest, cutest game I've ever played. Letter 16 had me crying hysterically, VERY touching.

    Yudithia Rizkadinny


    It's a bit dissaponting after played hungry hearts. But this game is fun to play. I wonder why i can't get more customers

  51. guest-avatar

    I think it's a much more unfair game than the first one, and the other elderly centric games in the series. It's such a challenge saving up to the 15k for the Candy Palooza in preparation for a Thursday and it has turned me off even continuing multiple times. I will do it - I just wish this game's costs were toned down.

  52. guest-avatar

    another game of Gagex i enjoyed. finding the letters at the back of the shop is the main reason why i played this game. though it took a while to find them all, but i'll truly say that they were all worth it. great job!

  53. guest-avatar

    Its awesome, everything. ...from the background music,noise ,the story. ....a real emotional one the story is

  54. guest-avatar

    I've played before and I uninstalled it, when I wanna play again. I can't continue my progress and start from beginning? My heart was broken

  55. guest-avatar

    Pamela Cristobal


    Completing the catalog was a pain in the butt. But the story, as always with these games, is so worth it.

  56. guest-avatar

    Love it...I can't deny that this world has changed so much because of technology

  57. guest-avatar

    This game was boring and confusing. Not nearly as good as other games by this developer.

  58. guest-avatar

    Melanie Ferreira


    Struck me right in the feels, especially the background noise of children playing..

  59. guest-avatar

    It's very boring.... Waiting is for too long according to a game. In real shop u can actually wait but it can't work for a game.

  60. guest-avatar

    This game so amazing and good to play this game ...but too many ads video please remove ads video pls .

  61. guest-avatar

    Its a very bad game. Boring very slow plz dont download this game.

  64. guest-avatar

    Bad game Very bad game,what is this..i don't like this game...this game is waste of time

  65. guest-avatar

    Wonderful game, there is really a nostalgic feeling as you go deep in the story, with all of the candy and letters! Simply beautiful.

  66. guest-avatar

  67. guest-avatar

    im getting bored when playing this game..

  68. guest-avatar

    Short and sweet gagex game, the stories told are realistic and not always a cliched happy ending. Good idle clicker.

  69. guest-avatar

    Not that fun... the hungry hearts was better.

  70. guest-avatar

    Nostalgic and give me some sadness thinking of the grandma

  71. guest-avatar
