Experience Japan through your senses—starting with taste! One of my favorite things about traveling to different countries is trying the candy there. If you have a sweet tooth like I do, you'll love these Japanese sweet treats that are absolutely worth the higher costs from being imported.

Plus, you can impress your kids with unique candy that they can't find anywhere else. While some grocery stores cary a few imported Asian sweets like Hello Panda, Pocky, and Hi-Chew, the inventory is still pretty limited.

Here are some great candies to order online and experience Japan!

Japanese Kit Kat Variety Party Box

"Try flavors like matcha, hojicha, rum raisin, Shinshu apple, wasabi, Japan sake, and more! From Japan's iconic flavors to some regionally exclusive flavors you can only find in specific regions of Japan."

Koku Cookie: Sakura Domyoji (20 Pieces)

"This crisp and crumbly cookie is inspired by traditional sakura mochi. It’s flavored with both sakura petals and leaves for a light floral taste. It also includes domyoji, coarse rice powder, for texture."

Chestnut Drum Manju (12 Pieces)

"This manju (traditional Japanese sweet bun) contains a delicious mix of white bean paste and chunks of delicious chestnut!"

Puku Puku Tai: Strawberry (10 Pieces)

"This adorable snack is a fun, fish-shaped delight that has a crisp shell enclosing a light and tasty strawberry mousse."

Mikan Mochi (9 Pieces)

"Mikan is one of the sweetest citrus fruits, great for snacking, and has no seeds. Its sweet juice and peel flavor this mochi throughout."

Daimonji Ame Honpo Handmade Candy Gift Box (12 Bags)

"All candies are handmade in Kyoto by Daimonji Ame Honpo, a 100-year old family business. Each box contains 6 flavors of candies, 2 bags of each, for a tasty variety of their luxurious candies."

Fuubian Gift Box: Langue De Chat Cookies (20 Pieces, 4 Flavors)

"Included in this box are Strawberry Parfait and Pudding a la mode, inspired by two favorite Japanese desserts and which both feature tall fluffy fillings between delicate butter cookies. Also included are Sweet Potato Langue de Chat and Chocolate Banana Langue de Chat with rich flavorful chocolate fillings."
