Japanese Gifts Online is the first in the Netherlands to offer this excellent quality Japanese incense from Hyogo Prefecture to its customers.
The Awaji Island kohshi range consists of the following series:
- The Japanese Fragrance Series,
- The Finest Selection Series
- The Four Seasons Series
- Incense holders
Unlike incense from India, Japanese incense is not made from a bamboo stick as a base, but consists entirely of the natural raw materials of the incense itself. This burns the incense in its entirety and also reflects the excellent quality of this handmade incense.
History of Frankincense
In Japan, frankincense has played an important role in the daily life and culture of the Japanese for centuries.
Frankincense was originally used in temples to honor the gods. In Japan, incense is still used in religious rituals and in the cemetery to honor the deceased.
Watch here for a video of how Awaji's incense can be used for a ceremony at the cemetery.
About 70% of all Japanese incense is made on the Japanese island of Awaji.
