Showa Candy Shop 2

Experience nostalgia with a Japanese twist in this moving game.


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.

    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.

    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 .

    tran Ngo August 6, 2017
    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

    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 ?

    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.

    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.

    UnknownAugust 3, 2017

    it’s really a heart touching game….

    Falé Crystalia July 12, 2017
    Oh my gosh! It’s sooooo cute and warm! -w- The music is going to make me cry T~T It’s so welcoming like I imagine myself living in a small town somewhere in the countryside and there’s this candy shop where an old and nice lady who just want to gives children candies, toys and other stuffs… aaaaaw too much cuteness and warmth -w- I love this game! It makes my worries fly away and makes me relax for real!

    A really cute and easy game but with some serious foibles that made it unfortunately unplayable for me in the long run. Even if all audio is paused the game stops any music or podcasts playing. Also the change of day for the gatcha is locked to midnight in the US which unthinking for international players.

    Luke Jackson July 24, 2017
    I think it’s quite buggier than the first and adding the pod machine was aggravating would have been better if the amount of product in it was finite so all categories could be taken in less tries. A good addition was the ad boosts.

    Cute and relaxing. I love Gagex ‘s games because they all create beautiful and comfortable environments.The gameplay is simple, it just revolves around clicking on kids to get their coins and to collect items around the house. Each item, customer and letters that you get contain pieces of information that enhance the story.You can collect items which one would imagine a child in Japan would have as snacks or toys.The style of drawing is super cute, I love the drawings!!The story is heartwarming and to make everything more fun you can collect capsules and spend them to get little capsule toys, completing the collections is fun.TL;DR thank you for this game! I’d recommend it to anyone who likes story driven, slow games.

    Graphics are very good, like the first game. Don’t personally prefer the music in this one. Takes too long to complete, got bored before I could finish. Overall quite let down, the first one is still much, much better.

    Such a sad song.. it is someho heartbreaking seeing an old lady left behind to manage the store on her own.. but i guess in japan, that was pretty common

    Febianca Arios April 17, 2017
    This is so cute!! I really love the story inside though this is a simply game. I hope you make a zoomable control, could tap every pic, and i really want to see taro, hisako, grandpa/grandma, and her husband in family portrait.

    Katrina Foster April 28, 2017
    Its cute… But it stops my music upon loading. I play games on the bus on the way to work… This game just isnt for me because of that

    Zen wistalia May 11, 2017
    Toooooo boring thisis not what you call a shop game you just have to click the kids when they show up it just wasted my time on it ??

    Hikari Jing March 30, 2017
    The new update lags… Being patient with it because I’m almost through with the game.

    Rizka Akbar April 29, 2017
    This game is so relaxing. Overall great but, instead of touching the option to change from front to back, how about sliding it? I think it would be better.☺??

    Kristy Millen May 6, 2017
    Really love this game! Just have to wait… and i love to collect those things that kids brought from few visit and collect mementos and earned capsule tokens to get things from a capsule… just be patient! ❤❤

    Kavitha Shankar May 23, 2017
    Such a boring game….all u have to do is to tap on the kids visiting the shop.nothing else

    Ishan Mardhani April 28, 2017
    I can’t start this game . This game is not working properly in my mobile. It was a waste of time and network.

    UnknownApril 28, 2017
    Why this app is not responding??…my sis waited alot for this game,but this game is not responding…I don’t know why!! ?

    ME ! July 2, 2017
    Very simple game. Just tapping characters. Don’t have to “serve” them anything. Very cute but less engaging for me.

    Oriana Li June 27, 2017
    Interesting game that is easy to play and not time-consuming. I enjoyed reading the letters. Graphics is nice and cute.

    Alexa Gallego April 20, 2017
    Fun! The music is soft and calming too. Would never delete this game

    UnknownApril 17, 2017

    Though I am not Japanese,I feel like I’ve looked for this feeling all my life till now???

    나하나 April 6, 2017
    Simple game with a great storyline. Really enjoyed it!

    Annappa E April 16, 2017
    This is the best game ever. Every thing is perfect . music is so good and relaxing

    Nataline Gloriana July 10, 2017
    It would be great and more comfortable if we can move from back to front yard by sliding the screen without clicking the back/front button.
