If like us you find incense from some countries to be of the cloying, overly pungent, nana's stale perfume variety and have been turned off it for life - we implore you to give Japanese incense a chance. We guarantee you will be very pleasantly surprised.
The making of Japanese incense, like most things the Japanese turn their hand to, is truly an art form. Incense is considered one of the ways to beautify a space - scent being all important to our senses and often mood.
In the past incense was also a parlour card-game of sorts where players would guess the scent of the components of the incense - particularly popular with Kyoto's Geiko and Maiko (Geisha and their trainees). Beats Grand Theft Auto or Tiddlywinks in our humble opinion.
