I know that a bag of candy is counted as fukuro. Are the pieces counted differently based on the shape, long, thick, square, round, triangular, or is everything ko?


I personally would use 個 (こ). That should work alright for what you are trying to do.

  • Of course, I don't think it needs saying, but generic counters will work. – ajsmart Oct 6 '19 at 22:33
  • There's a very useful guide by Tofugu about this counter. – Ambo100 Oct 6 '19 at 22:51
