The Art of Japanese Incense

The art and appreciation for Japanese incense is known as Koh-do or ‘listening to incense’. Japanese incense doesn’t contain a bamboo core and so is much subtler and less potent than Indian varieties. The craftsmanship of this incense is phenomenal. Even after years of experiencing the same incense, you'll find new notes to each fragrance. There is a communication between the incense artisan and the user, a communication through fragrance. You can learn more about the art of Japanese Incense here.
