Japanese candy

Hi gang! I'm in search of stores that carry Japanese candies. I specifically like lychee flavoured Hichew and have visited the japanese mall in little tokyo, hk market and am about to check out nijaya. Any other suggestions?

  1. Update, nijaya and marukai doesn't have the lychee flavour...oh where, oh where can they be?

    1. Cost Plus World Market - Go to the candy section. They have loads of different jellies and hard. Also the 99 ranch markets will have japanese rice candies, jellies and hard. Sometimes the assumed obscure is right under our nose!

      1. Fugetsu-Do in Little Tokyo will have what you are looking for and more. The manju is excellent!!!

        1. I like the Korean supermarket in the basement of the mall at Western and Olympic. Lots of Asian candies.

            I think I'm there right,orange,melon,strawberry,mango, but no lychee hichew. ..

            Was I dreaming such a flavour existed?

              Fugetsu-do didn't have it either, the search continues.

                I'm at the korean Galleria as I dice. Onward!

                    Ur probably right that it was discontinued. I kinda had fun searching for them.

              2. If you can;t find them at those stores, try They do carry the lychee.
