Premium INCENSE by Shoyeido from Kyoto

It is widely believed that incense was brought to Japan over 1400 years ago, along with the conveyance of Buddhism.
Historically, Japanese Incense has often been cherished and used for religious occasions, in the social routine of samurai warriors, and more. During the Edo period (1603-1867), incense became popular among all classes, as it was established as a tradition for all Japanese culture. Centuries later, the Japanese style of living has changed but the appreciation and pride for incense in Japanese culture remains the same.

TEN VIRTUES OF KOH: ● It brings communication with the transcendent. ● It refreshes mind and body. ● It removes impurity. ● It brings alertness. ● It is a companion in solitude. ● In the midst of busy affairs, it brings a moment of peace. ● When it is plentiful, one never tires of it. ● When there is little, still one is satisfied. ● Age does not change its efficacy. ● Used everyday, it does no harm.

Shoyeido has preserved family traditions and secret recipes for over 300 years.
 Their products are produced with the greatest care so the customers can enjoy the highest quality of incense.
Since their establishment in 1705, Shoyeido has worked diligently to perfect the art of manufacturing Japanese incense, also known as "Koh". We are pleased to offer a wide variety of Shoyeido incense for use in many applications — praying in a religious setting, special activities such as Tea Ceremony, or simply to scent a room for a casual occasion.
