Incense blends from 1000 years ago that unravel the history.
Incense ingredients that drifted ashore in ancient Japan are sublimated as SCENT of JAPAN, and now travel to the world.
This is a re-discovery of "SCENT of JAPAN" that transcends 1000 years and connects the past and the present through tradition.
Awaji Island in 595. A piece of driftwood as large as a bag of rice washed ashore. When the islanders lit the tree on fire, a wonderful fragrance wafted out and spread throughout the area. This was Agarwood — The beginning of the Scent of Japan. (Nihon Shoki, vol. 22)
Six in Sense | ROKKON
Six in Sense is translated as ‘Six Roots’ in Japanese, deriving from a Buddhist term that refers to the five senses; sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, plus a sixth: consciousness.
And to maintain these six "powers" which most of us are lucky enough to naturally possess - this process of purifying both the mind and body is called ‘the Six Roots Cleansing.’
All of the ingredients have arrived to us from all over the world, and were then mixed and blended in Japan 1000 years ago.
