Takazawa Candle

Nanohana Japanese Candle

$ 30

Savor a uniquely quiet, intimate atmosphere with the beautiful shadows created by the powerful flames of these Japanese candles.

Made primarily from nanohana (rapeseed) oil, these candles are characterized by a relative lack of odor, even after the flame has been extinguished.
Founded in 1892 at Nanao City on the Noto Peninsula, Takazawa Candle continues to make unique, nature-inspired candles to this day.

Burning time: 55 minutes. Contains 40 sticks.

Japanese candles are made of plant-based wax that generates less soot than other types of candles. Wicks are made by carefully wrapping dried rushes one by one around a core of Japanese paper. This process creates a cavity that extends to the top of the wick; lighting the wick incorporates air into the cavity, which in turn sucks the flame inward and causes it to sway back and forth. The unique phenomenon of a flame that flickers even without the presence of wind also means that the candle will not easily go out.

Burning time: 55 minutes
