Since 1575, Nippon Kodo’s guiding principle has been to bring the culture of incense to the world. Nippon Kodo handmakes incense in the 400-year-old tradition of Jyuemon Takai (also known as Koju,) who crafted scents for the emperor of Japan--his scents were so popular even samurai would burn his incense in their helmets before battle. Nippon Kodo’s popularity continues today, being the biggest incense manufacturer in Japan, and used not only in ritual occasions, but in day to day life as well. To become a fully qualified incense crafter for Nippon Kodo takes a very long time: skilled craftsmen must sense very slight differences in daily weather and air conditions, as well as in the aromatic materials. An experienced craftsmen finishes each product with careful attention to all aspects of the production process: kneading, cutting, selection, and rolling.
Along with this, Nippon Kodo carefully selects the natural aromatic materials that go into their incenses, gathering high-quality materials from around the world, while also engaging in forestation and other forms of conservation in Southeast Asia to protect the environment from which their materials come from. While carrying on the wisdom and traditions of their forebears, Nippon Kodo crafts their products everyday with a want to enrich people’s lives and minds, while also promoting the traditional cultural activity of incense burning to convey Japan’s beautiful traditions.
