How it all began

The recipes for our sweet confections were mastered and perfected in Hiroshima, Japan by Asataro Hirao. Approximately 90 years ago, he moved to Hawaii and founded Nisshodo Candy Store. His family has been continuing his very good work ever since.


No celebration of a traditional Japanese holiday would be complete without a box of Nisshodo Candy Store's delectable treats! Or start a new tradition in your house for Christmas or any other occasion you choose. Visit our photo gallery and see what strikes your fancy.
