You can find many kinds of confectionery and souvenir here. However, they did not attract me much as there are too many weird and surprisingly sweet products in Japan.
I went to Raku raku bakery, which is quite popular among both locals and tourists, for their miso bread. The bread was just ok but their ampan was delicious, so I would recommend their ampan instead of miso bread.
Another streetfood that surprised me was a stall selling cracker with takoyaki inside. The stall was small and the auntie selling the cracker was very friendly. Have a look for it when you visit confectioner yokocho.

don't forget to go to the second floor and see the tools used for making confectionaries during the edo period!
plus, the candy there doesn't just look nice, but also taste nice!

A short day trip to Kawagoe with small children and two old ladies was not too strenuous, good exercise, and fun! The charming small old town and it's specialty shops, nostalgic atmosphere and slower pace was definitely worth a day trip. You do need to be careful walking around town though - roads are narrow to just walk, let alone pass people, so you need to hold little and old hands for safety.

It is a good place to stroll around to see an alley of preserved architectural history but the kids did not appreciate it at the moment.

If you happen to be in Kawagoe on a Monday, be prepared for a lot of these stores to be closed. However the ones that are open will still be able to supply you with all of the traditional Japanese sweets and candies you could want. But the photo opportunities will be reduced. It is still worth a stroll through the neighborhood.

Kashi Yokocho was a candies lane by the side of the main shopping street. All the shops there sold sweets and other traditional local snacks. The lane was narrow and crowded with children. On our way, we met a newly wed couple wearing yukata walking along the lane and took photos with the Edo buildings as background. They appeared to be the target for travelers during that period.

My favorite street in Kawagoe - Candy Lane!!!

Many shops selling local snacks and sweets. Perfect place to buy gifts/souvenirs for your family & friends here!

All these shops are close to each other, walking distance. There is even a big map posted on the street. Great way to tour this little unique town.

Candy Alley is a little shopping street not far from the main shopping street of Kawagoe. In 1923 when the Great Earthquake hit, Tokyo experienced a shortage in the supply of Japanese sweets, so orders for the hard to get candy poured into the Kawagoe area and the sweet producers prospered. Once there were over 70 stall holders in this area, but Kawagoe also suffered from an earthquake and then a fire inwhich many of the buildings made of timber were lost. Today there are a few of these shops remaining and we visited the oldest shop which has been making candy for over 200 years. We watched them making cinnamon candy that day and the lady in the front of the shop encouraged us to watch the process through the glass windows at the back. A lady from the candy making area brought out a tray with some of todays freshly made candy for us to try and we were surprised that it was still warm, but quite delicious. This is a wonderful area for trying traditional Japanese sweets and worth a visit, if only for a short time

We came here as part of a Kawagoe visit on a very busy Obon bank holiday. The town was packed & this street was no exception but we had promised our 3 year old a visit to 'sweet street'. As I had our 6 month old napping in a sling, I stood in the shade (it was a 35°C day) to wait for my daughter & husband while they shopped. A stall holder on the outside of the bend where the street kinks took exception to me waiting and physically pushed me hard (sleeping baby and all) to get me off 'his' pavement. Unfortunately for him, i gave as good as i got and he ended up chasing me down the street hurling racial abuse. This lunatic gives all the other traders a bad name. For reference, he's tall and wears a white overall and sells purple sweet potato products rather than candy. Steer well clear. On a positive note, the purple sweet potato ice cream further down the road is great & you can stand wherever you want without fear of assault!
