Konpeito "Shiki" / ￥864
You may not be familiar with the term "Konpeito". Konpeito is a small colored sugar candy originally from Portugal. It was one of the sweets brought from Portugal in 1546 and was an eye-catching item. As you can see in this picture, they are very colorful and cute as they are small. It is sweet and you can eat many because it is so tiny!
