Incense materials drifted to Japan in ancient times, sublimated as SCENT of JAPAN, now departs to the world.
Transcend time and space through the scent to 1000 years ago in Japan.
It is truly a re-discovery of the SCENT of JAPAN - bridging tradition and modern by blending 1000 years’ gap -
Awaji Island in 595. A piece of driftwood as large as a bag of rice washed ashore.
When the islanders lit the wood on fire, a wonderful fragrance wafted out and spread throughout the area. This was Agarwood and the beginning of the SCENT of JAPAN (Nihon Shoki, vol. 22)
Six in Sense
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 our incense materials arrive from all over the world and are blended in Japan, just as they were a thousand years ago.
Among them, we use abundantly of agarwood, which is considered the most precious and rare in the world of incense.
Listen to the scent with gratitude to nature.
