What to Expect
1. Enjoy making incense in Awaji Island!

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. Choose your favorite Kinchaku bag made of Nishijin-ori textile fabric!

Nishijin-ori, which has been produced for about 1,500 years in Kyoto, is a famous textile fabric. First, you can choose your favorite Nishijin-ori Kinchaku from alternatives with a wide variety of colors and patterns. Enjoy choosing traditional patterns and fabrics of Nishijin-ori.

3. Mix your favorite fragrances!

We provide eight kinds of fragrances. You can choose a fragrance you like from the choices. Of course, you can mix some of your favorite ones! What is the fragrance of the sea? What about a forest or the sky? It would be a lot of fun to think about a theme for the scent bag♪ Enjoy creating your favorite fragrance. After your favorite fragrance is decided, put the fragrance into the scent bag and close the bag.

4. Take your scent bag home with you!

Now you have got your favorite scent bag♪ It is a fashionable and compact bag, so you can carry it anywhere you go. Your favorite fragrance from the bag makes you feel relaxed anytime. It is also great for a souvenir.

We really look forward to your next visit!
