Takazawa Candle

Established in 1892 in the port city of Nanao, Ishikawa Prefecture, Takazawa Candle’s products stand out not only in their quality, but also in their unique candle designs and shapes, calling to mind various scenes of nature, particularly those of plants found in the city of Nanao. By using a special wick made from a unique recipe that dates back to the 16th century. The wick is made by winding dried rushes around a hollow cord of wa-shi (Japanese paper.) By having a hollow core, oxygen is able to be drawn up from the bottom so that the flame consumes more melted wax, thus making their candles’ flames burn bigger and brighter. Their candles call to mind ancestral wisdom, symbolizing the relationship between their ancestors and nature, and are all made from plant-based materials such as sumac wax, rice bran, and rapeseed flower oil.
