Japanese incense box, wood from the temples of Kyōto


In the temples of Kyōto, surrounded by tall trees, where the old floors creak underfoot, psalms escape behind closed doors and wisps of incense scent the air.

This unique atmosphere is all concentrated in this pretty box made of light paulownia wood (kiribako), which contains 300 long sticks of traditional Japanese incense, made from a mixture of wood and fragrant materials, just like those you might smell in a temple. Each stick burns for 33 minutes.

This incense was created by Toyoda Aizando, who has been based in Kyōto for several centuries, and who, in association with the nearby Chion-in temple, creates incense and objects for religious use in particular.

An incense that will complement our elegant brass Japanese incense holder, available here.

QUANTITY 300 sticks per box

This object keeps in memory the hand of the craftsman who designed it with patience. It will accompany your daily life, bringing its delicate and refined beauty, while contributing to the preservation of unique craft skills.

ADVICE FOR USE Use a suitable incense holder to hold the ash. Light the end of the stick with a match or lighter, extinguish the flame quickly by blowing on it to allow combustion. Place in a place away from flammable materials and watch the incense as it burns.
