sweet (and salty) tooth?

Wandered into a little sweet shop on 704 Kearney St. SF-right across from the Portsmith Sq. parking garage. Intitially was attracted by some weirdly translated phrase on their sign/window that now escapes me. They have a large selection of sweets .... the regular stuff: gummy bears, drops, hard candies, etc. but they also have an extensive selection of Asian dried/preserved fruits with little sample bowls next to each one. As a kid, I grew up with many of these and haven't had them in many a year. It was fun to take a stroll down memory lane...as I sampled the preserved lemons, plums, ginger,etc...if you've ever been curious or want to expand your taste buds-this is a good place to start.
Aji Ichiban is the name of the store.
