Nippon Kodo Oedo-koh Incense - Aloeswood

Incense-smelling ceremonies were the practice of court nobles, feudal lords and other wealthy people. Among commoners as well, while they may have lacked access to genuine fragrant woods, there was much fascination with them, and they are frequently featured in works of Kabuki and Joruri theater. The word Kyara, meaning Aloeswood, even became a general term for “something wonderful.” Experience the fragrance, and understand why it was the most highly prized of scents.

Each incense includes an incense holder that resembles the stone pavements of Edo. Tin was a favored metal by the upper class during the Edo period. The tin incense stand included in the package can be washed with water and will last for a long time.
