Wholesale District of Popular Cheap Sweets called "ʉَq/DAGASHI"
Mom-and-pop Candy Stores/ʉَq/Dagashiya

In Nishi-ku, there is a wholesale district of cheap sweets called "Meido-cho Kashi Tonya-gai/@َq≮X".
In 1994, Nagoya City government changed town's name from Meido-cho to Habashita and Shinmichi,
but "Meido-cho" still remains as a name of the intersection and bus stop.
In this area, there were more than 600 cheap sweets stores (the number of stores is decreasing now)
and cheap toy stores (ex. bubble soap kit, water gun, etc.).
However after 1970s, many of them were driven to go out of business
because of the increasing of supermarket and covenience stores i

If you would like to buy cheap sweets in bulk, Meido-cho is one of the best places in Japan.
Even if you don't want to buy, touring this area must be fun to feel nostalgia.

 This dagashi set was scattered at the
kashimaki in the wedding event

You can buy cheap sweets in small lots
