Savor the deep, rich fragrance of aloeswood, prized by the people of old Edo as the most luxurious of fragrances.

Incense-smelling ceremonies were the practice of court nobles, feudal lords and other wealthy people. Among commoners as well, while they may have lacked access to genuine fragrant woods, there was much fascination with them, and they are frequently featured in works of Kabuki and Joruri theater. The word kyara, meaning aloeswood, even became a general term for "something wonderful". Hair wax that evokes the scent of aloeswood was extremely popular as well. Experience the fragrance, and understand why it was the most highly prized of scents.

Nippon Kodo's devotion to making fine incense follows a long and honored tradition that started more than 400 years ago and can be traced back to Jyuemon Takai, better known as Koju, a skilled artisan in the art and the principal provider of precious rare and exquisite aromas to the Emperor of Japan and his Court.
