japanese sweet shop [San Francisco]

I stumbled upon a store on Market, near Montgomery BART, w/ a sign that read Japanese Sweet Shop--beautiful things inside. I just looked. If I were to sample, what would folks recommend?

    They are very beautiful and actually taste pretty good too if you like Japanese sweets (lots of sugar and sweetened bean paste). And if you don't mind spending $3-$5 on a small 1-2 bite sweet. I think of them like buying fancy truffles and chocolates. Their fall season chestnut mochi was delicious. Their tsuya were some of the best dorayaki I've ever had.

    If you don't eat a lot of wagashi, I don't know that you'll notice enough of a difference in these to make it worth the price. But if you are curious about such sweets and don't mind spending a few extra bucks, it would probably be one of the nicest version of these sweets you'll come across and an excellent introduction to them.
