Greetings to all pastry lovers! Here is a shop that is true to its name, Sweets of Happiness. Every dessert will bring a bit more joy to your day. Not only are there cakes but cookies, donuts, puddings, and cheesecakes. Looking for something special? Sweets of Happiness also hold events to buy for a special occasion such as Christmas, Birthdays, and recently Valentine's Day.

If you look at the photos above, you can see one of the many pastries that are specialized for the season. This specific dessert is a strawberry and blueberry tart dedicated to Valentine's Day and the Strawberry fair that the store held. And below you will be able to see the other sweets which were made to celebrate the day of love.

The must-try at this mini shop would have to be the lovely donuts. There are numerous flavors to choose from. You can start off with the basic but equally delicious ones such as plain, chocolate, strawberry, and lemon. Then if you are interested, you move on to the tea-inspired ones. The two that you can try are matcha {green tea} and houjicha {roasted green tea}. My personal favorite would have to be the houjicha. The donuts are a tad bit sweet but complement a cup of warm tea or coffee.

Other delights you would be able to find are cheesecakes, puddings, and cookies. One that I personally like to enjoy is the cafe latte pudding. Surprisingly enough you can also discover a fair share of the desserts that are based on pistachio flavor.

Sweets of Happiness is in a small town called Hasami. The area itself is proudly known for its pottery and ceramics. So after picking up one of the many sweets you can walk around to discover what other charms the town holds.
