1. About Incense

Around the 6th century, incense was introduced into Japan along with Buddhism. Incense also means the art of incense-burning. We can enjoy smelling its natural fragrance produced by burning an aromatic tree, such as ‘kyara (aloeswood )’, ‘jinko (agarwood )’and ‘byakudan (sandalwood). At that time when incense was brought into Japan, the purpose of using incense was to purify a human body and drive away something evil, so it had a religious meaning. Later, incense came to be used by ordinary people in their daily life. And nowadays people often use it as part of aromatherapy for the purpose of relaxing themselves and getting rid of their stress.

2. Let’s choose colors!

Today, you can enjoy wonderful fragrances expressing a variety of natural elements such as seasonal flowers and plants, water and air, the sun, and rain.

First, choose the color of incense expressing fragrance! Then, knead the incense with an earthenware mortar. Don’t worry as it’s easy! Our instructors will show you the process, so just follow their instructions and enjoy the process!

3. Choose whatever fragrance you like, and take the incense out of the mold!
