The accessories sold at nanaco plus+ are really cute; so cute in fact that I got a striped ball candy and konpeito earrings! The striped ball candy earrings use real candy in them, and they are all a bit different since they are handmade, so choosing which one to get was really fun. Note that the refined and cute earrings and kanzashi hair ornaments go really well with kimonos and yukatas!
