Located on the northwest coast of Awaji Island, where incense sticks were first manufactured in Japan, Seikado is a member of the Awaji Island Koshi trade group comprised of fourteen kohshi (Incense Masters) of Awaji Island. Awaji Island incense is born from traditional incense manufacturing methods, strict quality management, and the skill and pride of each individual kohshi. This is the deep world of incense that simply can not be imitated by modern mass production methods. The Awaji Island Kohshi have maintained the quality of Awaji Island incense, which has been cherished throughout its long history and tradition. Seikado strives through its incense to express traditional Japanese fragrance that has been passed down to the present day.
