Kasugai kompeito (also written konpeito) candy, a kind of hard candy that looks like stars, exploding out in all directions. Each package is 6" x 8" (15 x 21 cm). As seen in the Ghibli film Spirited Away, by Hayao Miyazaki (this is what Kamaji feeds to the little soot sprites, called Susuwatari). Since this candy has been loved in Japan for more than 400 years, it's also good for fans of traditional Japanese "dagashi" treats.
